Reel Youth Film Festival Comes to Rossland

Rossland Council for Arts & Culture will be bringing the Reel Youth Film Festival to town!

The Reel Youth Film Festival pulls together an insightful, compelling and humorous collection of short films from across the globe – all made by youth. Chosen by a youth selection panel from over 700 submissions and 20 countries around the world, this collection will show you the world through the eyes of an incredibly gifted emerging group of filmmakers. Whether a psychological thriller from India, a music video about love and diversity from Georgia, or an Australian romantic comedy about insects, laughing and learning are guaranteed at the Reel Youth Film Festival.

The Reel Youth Film Festival empowers young artists to express their creativity, entertain audiences, and share their visions for a more just and sustainable world. The festival is a model for community engagement, a celebration of youth culture, and a showcase for the richness and diversity of a new generation of filmmakers.

The festival screens short films made by young people under 20, and tours in partnership with youth media organisations, high schools, community groups and other established film festivals. The festival tour kicked off at the Vancouver International Film Festival and is on to tour across Canada and around the world.

The Rossland experience will be this weekend, Saturday, November 21, 2015 1:00 PM.

A little warning: some films contain mature themes and may not be suitable for viewers under 12 years of age.
