Arlington International Film Festival Youth Film Shorts

The Arlington International Film Festival (AIFF) through its Student Filmmaker’s Program, seeks to honor what young filmmakers, 18 and younger, are bringing to the screen with their agility of mind, inventiveness, and passionate idealism. Through the medium of film, we are seeing students take stock of the diverse array of social issues here and around the world and mobilizing to illuminate and act upon the interconnections we share. AIFF is pleased to provide a platform for these young filmmakers to speak out, communicate and forge alliances rooted in mutual respect, while synthesizing different experiences and points of view. Through the screening of these films, we encourage young filmmakers to share their vision and perhaps encourage the creation of a better tomorrow.
