The spring of 2014 marks the 7th annual “Under 19 Film Festival”. The Rossland Council for Arts and Culture and the newly formed Rossland Youth Action Network are collaborating on this year’s festival, held on May 3, at the Rossland Miners’ Hall and an anchor event among the various activities hosted during Rossland Youth Week, May 1-7. Expect to see another remarkable display of short feature films produced by local youth, as the festival is the only one of its sort in our region.

Local participants aged 10-19 years from the West Kootenay area are invited to submit short films (10 minutes in length maximum) in six categories:  from documentary to sports and adventure. New this year is the addition of short, under 19 second “Mini-clips”.

The U19 event is driven by a youth planning committee, consisting of local youth from the Greater Trail area, which plans and determines the direction of the film festival from beginning to end with the guidance and support of a coordinator. The youth are involved in all aspects of planning the festival, including writing grants, making budgets, designing the format of the festival, providing input on outreach and communications and running the actual event. They decide on the winning categories, the overall theme for the festival and also act as master of ceremonies of the event. This form of organization and planning leads to a uniquely different festival each year; from themes to decorations, one is certain to experience an event that is refreshing and inspiring.

Many local businesses and corporations sponsor this event each year. Without their financial contributions and in-kind donations, this event could not take place.
