Youth/Amateur Program Summary

The Salem Film Festival Youth/Amateur events will begin on Tuesday, April 14, 2009. A Youth/Amateur Competition, as well as film screenings and panel discussions created to appeal to high school and college students, will kick off this popular component of the Festival. This YAC program is intended to inspire young people and encourage them to further explore their own artistic capabilities and the variety of paths into the industry of multimedia production. Students and young amateur filmmakers will be introduced to the personal stories of industry experts who will provide insights into the field. The Youth/Amateur program will also offer an opportunity for these young filmmakers to have their original works shown before the public.
Professionals in the fields of media creation and production will participate in panel discussions to further educate and enlighten amateur filmmakers in the workings of the industry. A panel of judges will select the best short videos submitted for competition by student and amateur filmmakers in the following categories: Non-Fiction, Fiction, Abstract/Artistic, Highlights Reel, 72 Hour Project, Public Service Announcement, Commercial, Best Special FX or Motion Graphics. The top three winners in each category will be honored in an awards ceremony at The Grand Theater on Saturday, April 18th. Their films will be shown on the big screen before a live audience.
