The best and brightest young filmmakers will gather at the Cinerama Theater in Seattle for the 10th annual National Film Festival for Talented Youth (NFFTY). From April 28 to May 1, 2016, directors under the age of 25 will present films in a variety of genres and themes. The festival provides participants with an opportunity to collaborate with their peers, network with industry professionals, and attend presentations by panels and guest speakers.
NFFTY was created to encourage the next generation of filmmakers. Over the last decade, it has become the world’s largest film festival for emerging directors. NFFTY is the flagship program of The Talented Youth, a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting young artists.
