Beginning this Wednesday, July 14th, and running until Saturday, the Toronto Youth Shorts Film Festival will provide a much-needed forum for young filmmakers to show their work. First up, on Wednesday, July 14th at 7pm in the Innis Town Hall, the resulting films from the T24 (making a film in 24 hours!) Project will be shown. Screenings will be followed by a Q & A filmmakers, and a small reception.
On Thursday, July 15th at 7pm in the Innis Town Hall, is the Reflections on the World at Home program, shorts that have a social commentary, sometimes on a global scale. A Q & A session with filmmakers will follow.
Friday, July 16th at 7pm in the Innis Town Hall, will be the Personal Journeys program, obviously devoted to more personal, intimate short films. Also to be followed by a Q & A session with filmmakers.
The final night of the festival, Saturday, July 17th at 8pm at the Alumnae Theatre (70 Berkeley Street) is the Awards Gala, a chance to honour the best of the festival (but obviously no screenings are involved).
