Our film fest is based on beautiful Salt Spring Island. We celebrate young filmmakers with our positive and unique festival. The Salt Spring Youth Film Festival is an annual event dedicated to showcasing new films by young filmmakers. This is our second year running and the festival will take place over two days on Salt Spring Island.
In addition to presenting programmes of films in all genres we will offer workshops and talks by film industry professionals in a fun atmosphere where filmmakers can meet and mingle with their peers.

    Best film festival I have attended. It's small, but mighty, with lots of heart. I was honored to have my film Detective George accepted for screening, and was so glad I made the trip to attend the festival.
