About the Festival

Documentary-style filmmaking is a powerful tool for creating a narrative that engages audiences and inspires change in the world. We are asking young people and students to share their perspective and talents and submit your own 3-10 minute short documentary about a social issue relevant to your community.


Winners will be rewarded with a cash price and showcased at SLO International Film Festival in March 2019.
