Lights, camera, action!
The annual Under 19 Film Festival (U19) will be at the Royal Theatre in Trail this Saturday, April 27 starting at 6 p.m.
This is the largest youth film festival in the Kootenays where young filmmakers compete with their original short films in seven categories for cash prizes up to $200.
Film categories include drama, documentary, comedy, snow sports, sports adventure, people’s choice and judge’s choice.
Films are under 10 minutes, made by youth from the West Kootenay who are under 19 years of age. Filmmakers were able to enter as many films as they wanted.
As part of the film festival, there is a free filmmaking workshop from 4-6 p.m. before the festival at the Selkirk College Trail Campus hosted by multimedia specialist Zeb Hansell and independent film maker James Klemmensen.

The U19 Festival is open to the public and entry is $5. Lots of door prizes.
Proudly presented by The Rossland Council for Arts and Culture and The Kootenay Association for Science and Technology.
