Do you enjoy creating short films or inspiring video content? Are you a young film maker aged between 16 to 30?

The fourth edition of the Malta Youth Film Festival has been launched and you should participate

As Stanley Kubrick once said: If it can be written or thought, it can be filmed.

The festival is open to all film genres including animation, drama, thriller, music video, documentary and others. Those interested in participating should develop and produce a short film, not longer than 10 minutes. Films submitted for this festival will be first shortlisted and then judged as per criteria below:

  • storytelling quality
  • technical direction
  • creativity and originality of concept
  • acting skills
  • audience engagement

There are 7 awards to be given out to the young film makers as part of this festival:

  1. Best script
  2. Best direction
  3. Most original concept
  4. Best actor
  5. Best cinematography
  6. Public choice award
  7. Best picture

And get this – the winner of the Best Picture Award are awarded a 500 euro cash prize and the opportunity to participate in the Norwegian Youth Film Festival which is held in Tromso, Norway.

Calls for submissions by young film makers will be open until 22nd March, 2021. The MYFF 2021 guidelines provide more information on how to get engaged.
