This film festival highlights youth creativity, features a teen perspective on many important issues, and showcases the incredible work done by the next generation of media-makers.

Winners will be announced at the end of the screening, where they will be awarded cash prizes and a Sparky Trophy, with first prize taking home $500. Before viewing the films, festival goers can enjoy dynamic media activities, light refreshments, and giveaways.
