About the film contest
Every year, the Youth Free Expression Program invites young filmmakers to create a short film on a contemporary First Amendment issue. Over the past 15 years, the YFEP Film Contest has showcased the films of dozens of teens whose vision and respect for free expression will inspire generations to come.
NCAC’s Youth Free Expression Program Film Contest is made possible by generous support from the New York Film Academy.
