Light House Studio, Allison Partners and Sigora Solar, are excited to present the 17th Annual Youth Film Festival (YFF) Friday, September 14th at the Paramount Theater. YFF will showcase a variety of films made over the past year, giving students the opportunity to share their work with the community. YFF is also Light House Studio’s most important fundraiser of the year.

This year’s exciting lineup of films are cultivated from:

· almost 400 student films created over the past year by the 1,782 students served

· work produced in more than 130 workshops ranging from animation and visual effects to documentary and narrative storytelling and music video

· clips from collaborations with 59 community partners including nonprofit organizations and schools


Many of the 2017 YFF films were accepted to 20 national and international film festivals, winning notable awards, including Hot Shot Winner at Sun Valley Film Festival. This year’s YFF attendees will be among the first to see the student films before they hit the 2019 film festival circuit!
