YoungCuts Poster and Contest

YoungCuts Film Festival Submission Poster and Contest

We have a new YoungCuts Film Festival submission poster and contest which you can see below. 

I guess we should say Posters, one in English and the other bilingual.

To mark the release of our Festival Poster, we are going to have a contest. The rules are simple. All you have to do is print out one of our posters, hang it up somewhere cool where young filmmakers can see it and send us a picture of the poster. It should be obvious from the picture in what city or country the poster is being displayed.

Here are some examples from last year.

We will feature the best pictures on our web-site, blog, Twitter, Facebook and Google+. The person who submits what we believe to be the best picture wins a free subscription to our web-site and we will waive the submission fee for a newly submitted film of the winner's choosing. We will announce the winner May 1st.

You can download a PDF of the English Poster from HERE or the Bilingual Poster from HERE.



The YoungCuts Film Festival presents Great Short Films by the World's Best Young Filmmakers 29 and under. If that sounds like your film, SUBMIT TODAY!

If you are an animator, you may be interested in our YoungCuts Animation Prize. This juried prize will award the winner a free spot in a one day Animation Masterclass being given in Montreal June 2nd by veteran Disney animator Andreas Deja.

For the first time this year, we invite the public to become a YoungCuts judge by subscribing to our site, for about the price of a movie ticket, to watch and vote for films submitted to the Festival. Based on this People's Choice voting we will announce 20 films selected to be included in our Top 100 films - announced in mid-July and played during the YoungCuts Film Festival September 28th and 29th.

Our subscribers can already watch a selection of films from the 2011 YoungCuts Film Festival, plus watch and vote for our Early Bird films as well as films that almost made it into last year's Festival in our Second Chance or Repechage Film Gallery. We will be adding new film galleries every two weeks until the end of June, so there will be plenty of great films to watch and vote for!
