The Greenfield Youth Film Festival involves a full day workshop for students from 20 regional high schools taught by industry professionals and college professors specializing in various elements of filmmaking. The relevant and engaging instruction is particularly valuable to aspiring filmmakers. Students from each school are mentored by their teachers as they create their own films to be submitted into the festival. The program culminates in an Academy Awards-style event showcasing those films. The program provides a platform for student expression, giving a voice to important issues and creativity.
