Young Cuts Film Festival

Montreal, Quebec - CANADA
September 29 to October 6, 2011

The 9th Annual YOUNGCUTS FILM FESTIVAL continues to deliver great short films by the world's best young filmmakers aged 25 and under. In addition to showcasing the work of rising stars, YoungCuts strives to find and create paying opportunities for the emerging filmmakers that take top honors at the Festival.

Leveraging sponsorships and partnership offers, YoungCuts has helped filmmakers find work after the Festival, assisted directors in finding additional resources and new project collaborations, and additionally offers all submitters an online networking opportunity through their affiliation with the MyFilmmaker website. Festival winners have gone on to achieve much success; after winning the award for Best Special Effects two years in a row at YoungCuts, Corey Mayne went on to land a job at Pixar.

The Montreal Mirror writes that the "YoungCuts film festival is a refreshing addition to the Montreal film scene," while The Montreal Gazzette declares that the filmmakers featured at YoungCuts "already have astonishing films under their belt… [which] would be colossally depressing, if it weren't so impressive."
