The Oscars telecast always makes us happy and sad. Happy that some (short) attention is being paid to short films. Sad that many of the great short films that we see every year - done on low budgets or no budgets; filmed with shoe strings, passion and hope - will never even be considered for an Academy Award.
So, this year, we thought that we would do something about that, and award the first ever YoungCuts KUDOS.
And this time, the Academy was YOU!

The YoungCuts Film Festival is the Premiere International Showcase for Great Short Films by the World's Best Young Filmmakers (29 and under).
Established in 2001, every year, the festival selects its Top 100 International Short Films from more than a thousand films from over 30 countries.
Unlike many film festivals, YoungCuts is not a black box. For filmmakers making paid submissions, we offer feedback when and where appropriate; we present their short films to our film industry partners including producers, distributors and programmers - this has led to short films being presented on TV, licensed for outdoor festivals and programmed by other film festivals who view us an expert on short films by young filmmakers. With your paid submission, you also gain privileged access to watch, vote and be inspired by great short films from young filmmakers around the world.
