ÉCU – The European Independent Film Festival announces the launch of a new category, “European Youth Film“, for it’s 2012 edition. ÉCU gives European youth the chance to submit their work to a supportive and engaging international community, providing them with exposure, helpful critiquing and the opportunity to participate in a real life film festival! Young filmmakers will be competing for the “The European Youth Excellence Award in Filmmaking”.
European youth filmmakers between the ages of 8 and 16 qualify for this category. Film submissions can be of any genre, length or language, but subtitles in either English or French are required to ensure the best judging. The films should be independent in spirit, creative and entertaining. Most of all, your film should show your talent- and it can also be fun.
ÉCU Film Festival will take place in Paris in March 30th to 1st of April 2012, an opportunity for your young filmmakers to visit the city with the most independent cinemas in the world. Furthermore, it is a great occasion to discover new films and network with filmmakers and industry professionals.
