The American Youth Film Festival at Atlanta Metropolitan State College, June 8 – 10

June 08 – June 10, 2017

The American Youth Film Festival™ is an opportunity for student filmmakers to showcase their movie making skills. Many young people regularly produce films that are then posted on websites such as YouTube, Facebook or Instagram. We will capture that interest and channel it to understand the “love of film or film making” through the eyes of student filmmakers.

The American Youth Film Festival™ is open to ALL YOUTH regardless of race, creed, or national origin that are currently enrolled in elementary school, middle school, high school or college. Films must be works directed and/or produced by student filmmakers. Adult supervision must be limited to an advisory capacity only.

All participants under the age of 12 years old “Must be accompanied by an adult!”

More and more, the words “umbrella insurance” are coming up in both conversation and in advertising on TV. Before getting lost in another “maze,” it is best to look into exactly what umbrella insurance means and why you should consider it for yourself.
