About YoungCuts  

YoungCuts has been helping young filmmakers develop their skills and promote their short films around the world since 2001. Simply put, YoungCuts helps filmmakers find ways to improve their chances of competing in the highly competitive film and television industries.

We began with a film festival in 2001, and continue to feature the best young filmmakers annually each fall in the YoungCuts Film Festival.  We regularly promote filmmakers to other well-established film festivals around the world, and many of these festivals seek to identify talent that has emerged at the YoungCuts Film Festival.

Recognizing the interest and need for filmmakers to learn their art, YoungCuts is now developing online learning courses that make it easy for filmmakers to improve their knowledge and processes.  Although there is no substitute for experience, filmmakers can accelerate their development by learning from filmmaking specialists and experts.

Filmmakers can develop their filmmaking skills faster, and then get the most out of film, whether it is a career, an avocation or a passion.
