Enter into LYFF2018

Leeds Young Film Festival takes place every Easter and welcomes young people and their families to the largest film event of its kind in the north of England.

Now in its 19th year, the festival features a programme of the best new and unseen cinema for young people from around the world, made both for and by young people, as well as classic screenings, moving-image related workshops and masterclasses. It takes place in four of the city’s most prominent venues and attracts over 14,000 young film fans and their families.

LYFF screens over 100 feature and short films annually. We support young and old, emerging or established, national and international filmmakers and host competitions both for short films BY young people, and for short and feature films FOR young people.

All Short and Feature categories for LYFF2018 are now open for submission on FilmFreeway.
