Review for The Talented Youth (NFFTY), Seattle, WA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I've always believed it is important to encourage youth in making art and film is one of the most powerful mediums of our time, which is why I've attended the NFFTY film festival for five years and have been board president for 3 years. There is an amazing group of volunteers, staff and young filmmakers who work year round to create this wonderful youth film festival gathering in Seattle every spring. Our mission is to enable, nurture, promote and encourage the next generation of filmmakers to inspire, lead and entertain the world with their stories.
I love watching the young filmakers arrive from all over the world and begin connecting with each other and talking shop with the film professionals and adult supporters. I've been privileged to hear participants share their stories of transformation and dreams in speed networking sessions, after screenings and parties. We've been growing steadily and the board is committed to expanding the opportunities for our filmmakers to create and show NFFTY films beyond the festival. I encourage everyone to support our organization and attend the festival.
