NFFTY (National Film Festival for Talented Youth) presents the 6th annual Works in Progress event!

This year, we’re exclusively accepting feature film submissions!

Do you have a rough cut of a feature documentary that needs to be re-worked after production was halted by COVID-19? A fine cut of your narrative feature that needs finessing? Screen your project in front of a knowledgeable panel and audience and get the feedback you need to finalize your best work!

Taking place during the 14th annual NFFTY, this event is a wonderful opportunity to have your unfinished work watched, reviewed, and critiqued by a diverse panel of industry professionals that want to help you make it through the finish line.

Selected filmmakers will receive a filmmaker badge for NFFTY 2020, receiving full access to all festival events.

- The film’s final intended runtime must be over 40 minutes

- Filmmaker must be 24 years old or younger at the time of production, OR an alumni of NFFTY.
