FIN KIDS FILM COMPETITION

 

(formerly ViewFinders Youth Film Competition)

 

 

 

At FIN Kids we bring young people and film together, and one of our favourite ways to do that is through our Film Competition presented by DHX Media.

 

The Film Competition is a challenge, an opportunity to connect youth with the film industry and a showcase of Atlantic Canada's best young filmmakers. For many young Atlantic Canadians, this is the first opportunity they have to see their work on the big screen and have it be evaluated by our panel of Industry professionals.

 

Past competition participants have gone on to present their work at the FIN: Atlantic International Film Festival, other festivals across Canada and the world. Many go on to film school.

 

So what are you waiting for? Grab a camera, some friends and start making your film today!
