The Youth Free Expression Project Film Contest is open to filmmakers age 19 and younger who are living in the U.S. or its territories (citizenship not required).
To qualify, you must submit an original film of four minutes or less addressing the topic: "You're Reading What?!?" You must discuss a time when parents, a teacher or some other adult was distressed at what you or someone you know were reading and wanted to take it away. Entries can be videos of any kind, including documentary, animation, experimental, satire, fictional narrative, or music video.
The top three winners will be awarded cash prizes and the first place winner will receive a $5000 scholarship to the New York Film Academy.
