The Extremely Young Film Festival showcases the innovative talents of young filmmakers from around the world. Aurora Picture Show accepts submissions for short-film entries in two age categories: youth and teen. All types of short films—including stop-motion, live action, and documentary—are eligible.
Born out of the spirit of Aurora Picture Show's Extremely Shorts Film Festival, for film and video under 3 minutes long, Extremely Young Film Festival puts the spotlight on entries by filmmakers from age 7 to 17. The festival celebrates their artistic, creative, and technical strengths, and their interpretations of the world in which they live, recognizing that these voices are the future of media expression.
Even though the Extremely Young Film Festival takes place in Houston, all youth and teen filmmakers, from anywhere in the world, may submit their work for consideration.
