Youth Filmmaker Showcase


PCFF is committed to nurturing the work of budding young filmmakers. Created in 2014, the Youth Filmmaker Showcase (YFS) celebrates the artistic talents of youth from here in Rhode Island and around the world. This juried collection of local, national and international films by young filmmakers presents creative and inspiring tales from a new generation of storytellers. The Showcase usually takes place in February during the annual Providence Children’s Film Festival and includes opportunities for these artists to meet other filmmakers and to share their vision and discuss their inspiration and production challenges. This pandemic year will be an exception. The Youth Filmmaker Showcase will be presented on an on-line platform in order to maintain safe, social distancing. 

Young filmmakers (ages 5-17) may apply as an individual or as a team. (e.g. schools, youth organizations, film clubs, etc.).
