Youth Choices Film Competition

Each year, the Youth Choices film competition challenges students aged 12 – 18 years to creatively explore a chosen youth issue. In teams of up to three, students research and create a short film of up to three minutes navigating the risks and devising solutions to an issue.

The winners are invited to work with professional filmmakers to turn their vision into the latest Youth Choices film.

Our online films are a useful resource for young people, their families and school communities here and internationally.
