YFF 2018 Corporate Sponsors


Youth Film Festival (YFF) will showcase a variety of films made over the past year, giving students the opportunity to share their work with a wide audience. YFF is also our most important fundraiser of the year.

To create the lineup for the festival, films are selected from:

  • Over 100 student films created over the last year by the 1,782 students we serve each year.
  • Work produced in more than 130 workshops, ranging from animation and visual effects to documentary and narrative storytelling.
  • Clips from collaborations with 50+ nonprofit organizations and schools.

Many of our 2017 YFF films have won major awards at international festivals including Hot Shot Winner at Sun Valley Film Festival and 3rd Place Documentary at the Philadelphia Youth Film Festival.


We look forward to seeing you on September 14th at the Paramount Theater!
Thank you to those who have already sponsored YFF 2018!
