Come Celebrate the 16th Annual Film Festival this April!

Are you a young director itching to show your movie? Are you a film fan who would love to see brand new, independent films? Then the Kiwanis Teen Film Festival is for you!  Submit your film, or just come join us for a night of movie magic this April.

Important Message: Unfortunately, due to extending circumstances surrounding COVID-19, we have made the decision to cancel the Film Festival this year. This saddens all of us tremendously! We know all of you have been working hard on your films for this year’s Festival. We also know that some of you are seniors this year, and it would have been your last year to submit a film. For this reason, we have made the decision to allow you (seniors) to enter films next year. So, keep working on your films and let’s make next year’s Festival the best one yet!
