MyView Youth Film Festival at The Branch – Tuesday, May 21 @ 7 p.m.

As youth are a vital part of a sustainable and vibrant community, Sustainable North Grenville is pleased to host the premier screening of the MyView Youth Film Festival.  Local youth from Kemptville and surrounding areas, aged 12 to 18, have been busy creating films that highlight issues that impact their lives.  The creativity and insight showcased in the films will amaze all who come out to the festival.  Films have been submitted into five categories: My Environment, My Health, My Community, My Culture and My Future.  A panel of celebrity judges have nominated the top two films in each category.

The nominated films will be showcased at two public screenings where audience members will have a chance to vote for their favourite film.  The premier screening will take place at The Branch Restaurant, located at 15 Clothier St in Kemptville, on Tuesday, May 21 at 7:00 p.m. Doors open at 6:45 for refreshments before the show.  Film makers from the nominated films will be on hand to participate in an interactive discussion with audience members following the screening.

The grand screenings will be on Saturday, May 25 at the Dandelion Festival in downtown Kemptville.  Screenings will be in the Old Fire Hall on Rueben St and will happen every hour on the hour from 12-6 p.m.  Admission for either screening is by donation to the Kemptville Youth Centre.  After audience votes have been counted the winning films will be announced live on the main stage Saturday night at the Dandelion Festival.  The grand prize for the top overall film is $1000.
