Fayette Youth Film Festival

My Reality


My Reality

Each of us is writing our story, what does it say?

Join us for a night of inspiration as we listen to what our youth has to say through film. Learn from industry experts in all areas of filmmaking as we learn to write a story that is worthy of who we want to be -- not just in film, but in life.

The 2nd Annual Fayette Youth Film Festival will celebrate and embrace all we admire in our youth's creativity, individuality, and talent. This event will showcase young filmmakers that have a positive message or unique viewpoint about who they are through this year’s theme, My Reality. A panel of young actors and industry experts will share stories about the industry and inspire us to follow our dreams. Through our red carpet experience, industry expert panel, and short film selections, we aim to educate and inspire our audience.

All proceeds from this event will go to the I AM Foundation, a 501 (c) aimed at changing the story of our youth.

Do something GOOD. Do something FUN. Do something INSIGHTFUL.
