IMFF Youth

We have always encouraged youth participation as volunteers or as filmmakers.  Recently we have been showcasing the work of young filmmakers from South Asia and have been blown away by their ability to tell original and amazing stories on tough and heartbreaking subjects.


We also recognize that there is a growing South Asian population with young adults who have a unique understanding of their world being born to immigrant parents.


We are eager to provide an opportunity to such young adults to showcase their movie-making talents and wow us with their short films.
