ViewFinders: Atlantic Film Festival for Youth

Coming to Halifax Regional Municipality April 29th & 30th, 2015!

VIEWFINDERS: ATLANTIC FILM FESTIVAL FOR YOUTH

 
Named after the optical window of a camera, ViewFinders: Atlantic Film Festival for Youth began as weeklong film festival for young people and their families in 2001. Since then it has grown into an Atlantic Canada wide youth initiative that brings the Atlantic Film Festival experience to school groups and communities across the region.
 
Each year ViewFinders presents the best in regional, national and international films for youth, tackling issues from multiculturalism and community to sustainability and creativity. The program’s activities like the VF School Tour, introduce the wonderful world of filmmaking through hands-on media workshops. And through film competitions, ViewFinders provides a platform for young filmmakers, a proven launching pad for the next generation of talent.
 
ViewFinders is the first step in a life full of experiencing and celebrating the art of film and filmmaking.
