The International Youth Silent Film Festival — International Awards Show
The festival challenges aspiring young filmmakers under twenty years old to create a three minute silent movie using original scores composed for the festival by award winning theatre organist Nathan Avakian. Screening finalists will have their films shown on the big screen, with live theatre organ accompaniment!
Winners are chosen by Hollywood professionals, and cash prizes of $1,000 for first place, $500 for second place and $250 for third place will be awarded.
Winners of the Pacific Northwest Regional are named official selections, and will join other regional winners to compete for the International Prize at the International Award Show to be held in Portland, Oregon, on June 8, 2016.
