Festival Submission (MasterClass) Payment

Filmmakers submitting their film to the YoungCuts Film Festival for consideration in our MasterClass section need to pay the submission fee described below.

The 2013 YoungCuts Film Festival is now accepting submissions to the YoungCuts MasterClass category for filmmakers 26 or older. This is a great opportunity for filmmakers over 25 to submit their best work to the Festival. Next deadline for this category is June 7, 2013.

Our goal in introducing this new section is to throw a spotlight on filmmakers over 25 (previously too old for the Festival) including many YoungCuts Alumni and to fulfil our mandate to present Great Short Films by the World's Best Young Filmmakers!

You can pay either before submitting your film, or after you have submitted.

We will be in touch to confirm that we received your submission within one business day.
