Screening across Canada from October 2018 to September 2019!

Most of the films we see are made by adults – so what happens when young people sit in the director's chair?

The world looks very different to young people from Iran, Lithuania, South Korea, and India, and their perspectives give rare insight into the next generation of leaders, change-makers, and visual artists.

                    A spunky teen girl misses her own birthday party in order to challenge the boys                       at the skate park.

                    A pair of French circus performers light up a homeless man's morning.

                    A long-suffering laboratory bunny accidentally changes the course of history.

                    Indigenous women share their experience of cultural loss, and rebuilding in the                       aftermath.

With these and many other moving and entertaining stories, the Reel Youth Film Festival showcases new work from young filmmakers around the world. These 19 short films were selected by an international youth jury from over 1,300 submissions and 100 countries, then curated to reflect diversity of expression and identity. This compelling collection is packed with humour, courage, and inspiration for viewers of all ages.

The collection has been rated PG by Consumer Protection BC.
