The 9th Annual YOUNGCUTS FILM FESTIVAL continues to deliver great short films by the world's best young filmmakers aged 25 and under.

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.
