About RAH! Out in Schools' Youth Film Contest: Are you a youth who is interested in how art catalyzes change? You are in the right place.Out in Schools is looking for youth-made short films that explore the real and diverse experiences of LGBT2Q+ youth. RAH! is all about creatively challenging homophobia, transphobia and bullying by telling stories that can change the world. RAH! creates the space for youth to practice making eye-opening, heart-strings tugging, perspective-shifting videos. So step up to the camera and show your vision of what more inclusive communities looks like. Use your digital camera, smartphone or any other device to create your films and submit it to us before May 20, 2016. Your films will be judged by a jury of youth, like yourselves, and the selected winners will be screened at the Vancouver Queer Film Festival. All entries will also be submitted into the Reel Youth Film Festival for a chance to be screened there, too!

The Reel Youth Film Festival (RYFF) is a collection of international youth-made films, which premieres at the Vancouver International Film Festival and tours across North America and beyond. Film selections are made by a youth jury, who rate them based on technical merit, entertainment value, and the message portrayed. If your film does not fit the criteria listed in the technical deets, you may still be able to submit it to just the Reel youth Film Festival - please see our submission criteria here.
