Call for submissions
The 2015 YFF Call for Submissions is now open. Submit your film to any one of our seventeen entry categories, including: animation, comedy, drama, short subject, and student production. We also have six categories exclusively dedicated to documentary, including: history & biography, and social/political.
We accept any Canadian film or video under sixty minutes in length in a variety of categories. The festival prides itself on its rigorous adjudication process headed by industry peers from across the country.
In addition to our annual festival, YFF offers numerous opportunities to connect great Canadian cinema with audiences. This includes partnership with local and provincial organizations to host regular screenings of films submitted to YFF, a local film club held from October through March, and our Golden Sheaf Awards Tour DVDs.
All of our events are held free of charge and open to all. Check out our events calendar to find out when our next event is being held.
YFF has a small, but dedicated, group of staff working to ensure the best possible festival experience. Our staff is able to help you with any questions, concerns, or ideas you may have about our festival. Feel free to check out our staff directory to find the right person to get in touch with.
