Young filmmakers in the Leeds-Grenville area have a chance to win up to a $1,000 grand prize in a local film festival.
Details have been announced for the 2023 MyView Youth Film Festival, an annual event for eastern Ontario residents between the ages of 10 and 24 years old.
In addition to the $1,000 prize for the best overall submission, and the prizes for the best in each age category, the $750 “I Love My Community” prize for the film that showcases a local area is returning, after first appearing last year.
John Barclay, the founder of the festival, says he’s excited for the contest.
“I’m looking forward again to seeing the creativity and imagination of young film-makers as they communicate what’s important to them,” he says.
Submissions need to be five minutes or less, and are being accepted until May 1st. You can find the full contest rules on the MyView Youth Film Festival website.
