Youth Video Competition 2016

The winners in the 2016 Youth Video Competition have been selected!

We’re excited to offer you and your guests an opportunity to see the winning entries in our 2016 Youth Video Competition. Please  join us on Saturday, April 30 at 2 pm in the Theatre at Central Library for a screening of the top 16 films submitted to this year’s contest.

75 talented young filmmakers responded to the call.  The variety, creativity and technical quality of the videos knocked the selection committee’s socks off!

Videos submitted covered a wide range of topics, including social commentaries, stop-motion adventures, comedies, thrillers and sci-fi fantasy films. The selection committee laughed, cried and struggled to pick their favourites. A big THANK YOU to all of the applicants for putting their creativity and imagination to work for this year’s contest!

Three talented youth in each of two age categories have bragging rights to call themselves ‘top filmmaker’ for this year’s competition (and score a cash prize).  Plus, 10 Honourable Mentions, all of whom had videos deserving of recognition, will receive a prize.

Could you be one of the winners?  Come to the Theatre Showcase on April 30 to find out!

Brought to you by City of Kitchener and Kitchener Public Library.
