Created in 2005, Cinema/Chicago’s CineYouth Film Festival is designed to encourage youth filmmakers in their creative endeavors. CineYouth provides opportunities for young filmmakers to articulate themselves artistically, and have their voice heard. Held annually in Chicago, CineYouth is a three-day festival celebrating and fostering the creativity of filmmakers 22 years old and younger by screening officially selected work and encouraging their creative endeavors by presenting a filmmaking workshop, discussions and panels.
CineYouth’s 14th year will be held in Chicago, IL at the iconic Music Box Theatre April 20-22, 2018 and will include screenings of Officially Selected films, hands on workshops and special events.
Thank you to all the filmmakers who submitted their work to the 2018 CineYouth Film Festival! We will announce this year’s line-up of Official Selections along with our Opening Night film on April 2. Check back for exciting details!
Have a plan for a new student short film? At the CineYouth Film Pitch, participants can pitch their works-in-progress to a panel of industry professionals for invaluable feedback.
