NFFTY (National Film Festival for Talented Youth) is the largest film festival for emerging directors, showcasing the work by filmmakers 24 years of age and under. Last year's festival featured 227 films from 24 countries and 33 U.S. states.  Each year we offer scholarships and cash awards.

Twice named "One of the Best Festivals Worth the Fee" by MovieMaker Magazine (2016, 2014) and currently one of the Top 100 Reviewed Festivals on FilmFreeway.

NFFTY 2017 Open for Entries - Named One of the 50 Best Festivals Worth the Entry Fee by MovieMaker Magazine



“NFFTY is like Sundance for young filmmakers.” – Bunee Tomlinson, NFFTY Filmmaker

SEATTLE, WA – The largest film festival for emerging directors, NFFTY (National Film Festival for Talented Youth), is now accepting entries for its upcoming 2017 festival, looking for the best films from filmmakers under 25 years of age. NFFTY 2017 will take place April 27 – 30 in Seattle, Washington and marks the organization’s 11th festival

Twice named One of the 50 Fests Worth the Entry Fee by MovieMaker Magazine (2016, 2014) and currently one of the Top 100 Rated Festivals on FilmFreeway, NFFTY provides a one of a kind first class venue for the world’s best young directors. Filmmakers and film fans together for four days of films, networking events, panels, virtual reality screenings and parties. NFFTY 2016 featured 227 awe-inspiring films that represented 33 states and 24 countries with attendance surpassing 12,000. Over the last decade, NFFTY has supported over 2,000 emerging filmmakers – many having gone on to make great contributions in the global filmmaking community.

With the 11th year, NFFTY plans on creating an experience that supports and promotes our young, talented filmmakers. NFFTY will continue to support its Young Women in Film initiative for the fourth straight year, as NFFTY makes strides to empower female filmmakers to embrace their craft in an industry where only 9% of films are directed by women. For three years in a row, over 40% of NFFTY films have been directed by female directors.

NFFTY not only showcases great entertainment, it creates it too. NFFTY Creative, the original content production arm of the organization, is producing original material for brand name clients and sponsors and giving NFFTY alumni real world opportunities to work on paid projects. Any filmmaker selected for NFFTY 2017 will be eligible for consideration on these projects. One of the most recent projects completed earlier this summer was a 15 part series for Expedia called Sight UnScene, that asked NFFTY filmmakers to explore unexpected destinations in their hometowns.

“NFFTY is the voice of the next generation of storytellers. I’m excited to kick off our 11th year and find the exceptional films from around the world and meet today’s newest and boldest talent” said Stefanie Malone, Executive Director of NFFTY.

NFFTY is accepting submissions for the 2017 film festival until January 30, 2017. Entries can be submitted online via FilmFreeway. More information including deadlines, entry fees and eligibility can be found at:
