NFFTY advances and connects talented young filmmakers worldwide. We seek to disrupt systems of inequity in the film/media arts industry. Founded to address discrimination against young film professionals, we celebrate and elevate work by women, BIPOC, LGBTQIA+, and other young persons from traditionally marginalized communities at a crucial stage in their emergence as an artist and storyteller. We ensure that emerging filmmakers are represented and given a platform to share their perspectives.
The Talented Youth is a 501(c)(3) non-profit arts organization that was founded in 2007 with NFFTY (National Film Festival for Talented Youth) as its flagship program.
NFFTY has grown into the world’s largest film festival for emerging directors. Each year the festival showcases films by directors 24 and under.
NFFTY & The Talented Youth support young filmmakers by offering professional level workshops year-round. In addition NFFTY.org hosts filmmaker resources, tips, news and information.
Within NFFTY lies a creative production company, NFFTY Creative, that connects brands with emerging talent to produce original content.
