Chinh Youth Film Festival is a celebration of Youth culture,
it is a platform to connect and express through cinema
and give voice to the meaningful, thought-provoking,
and brutally honest narratives from young people across the globe.

We aim to encourage independent artists
and provide a grandstand for youth to channelize their creative energies.

CYFF experience is a stage for all of us to share
YOUR STORIES and create new ones.

CYFF is where youth decides,
a place where youth is encouraged to bring out their ideas on cinema,
with emphasis on developing the right cinematic language in them.
Helping youth see beyond the basic elements of the cinematic experience
and provide an opportunity to engage, evaluate, critique, asses
and appreciate the best cinematic expressions from across the globe.

Festival films will be judged by YOUTH JURY.

All projects are accepted and everyone will receive an official selection certificate PDF file. We do not have any restrictions whatsoever.


1. The awarded films and the ones qualified for the competitive categories would become part of CHINH International Film Cooperative intended to screen the films in colleges, educational institutions, libraries, NGOs, and CHINH chapters.

2. The selection of the films would entirely be at the discretion of the Advisory Board of CHINH YOUTH FILM FESTIVAL.

3. The music tracks used in the film should be original or be cleared of copyright by the filmmaker or producer. The festival would not be responsible for any copyright violation vis-a-vis music rights for screening the film.

4. The official selected film will be screened for 12 hours on our Youtube channel for Youth Jury.
