You Are The Future Of Film
The All American High School Film Festival is the largest student film festival in the world. Our festival offers an unparalleled experience designed specifically to promote and empower the future of film. Each October, thousands of student filmmakers join us in New York City for an action-packed weekend of resources and entertainment, including our Teen Indie Awards Show, where we hand out over $400,000 in prizes and scholarships. In 2018, we screened over 700 short films made by middle and high school students from around the world at the AMC Theaters in Times Square, the busiest movie theater in America!
