The 18th Annual Youth Film Festival (YFF) will showcase a variety of films made over the past year, giving students the opportunity to share their work with a wide audience. YFF is Light House Studio's most important fundraiser of the year.
To create the lineup for the festival, films are selected from:
- Nearly 200 student films created over the last year by the 1,768 students we serve each year.
- Work produced in more than 120 workshops, ranging from animation and visual effects to documentary and narrative storytelling.
- Clips from collaborations with 60+ nonprofit organizations and schools.
Many of our 2018 YFF films have won major awards at national and international festivals including Silver World Medal Best Student Film at New York Festivals TV & Film Awards and Audience Favorite Award at Albany Film Festival!
Please join us on September 7th at the Paramount Theater and be the first to see Light House student films before they hit the 2019 film festival circuit!
The VIP Party will begin at 5:30PM with a cocktail hour and hors d’oeuvres. Doors for General Admission open at 6:45PM. The film screenings will begin at 7:00PM.
