The 2009 Youth Free Expression Network Film Contest is open to filmmakers age 19 and younger who are living in the U.S. or its territories (but need not be citizens). To qualify, you must submit an original film of four minutes or less addressing the topic: “Free Speech in School (Does it Exist?)”.
Entries can be videos of any kind, including documentary, animation, experimental, or music video.
The top three winners will be awarded cash prizes and the first place winner will receive either a $5000 partial scholarship to the NYFA film making program or a full scholarship to the NYFA’s one week digital film making course.
