About YoungCuts

A variety of new film technologies now empower filmmakers to produce Hollywood-style films on any budget. Nowhere is this more evident than in the world of short film.

Globally, thousands of short films are produced every year. Yet, fewer than 10% of these films are selected by recognized film festivals.

Since young filmmakers represent an increasingly important segment of this elite group, they merit special attention.

YoungCuts was created in 2001 to provide special attention to such emerging talent.
