Mission / description The YoungCuts Film Festival (est. 2001) presents "Great Short Films by the World's Best Young Filmmakers". Every year, we watch more than 1000 films fron over 30 countries to pick our Top 100 short films.

Our larger mandate is to find and create paying opportunities for young filmmakers which we mainly do by producing short educational films for governments, corporations, schools and charities. Examples can be seen at

We will play films of any type or genre. We specifically give out awards for Documentaries, Animation, Short Shorts, Music Videos, Teen films and Web Videos. Our sole criteria is that films should be good, short (under 30 minutes) and by young filmmakers (under 30 years old)
