DYCD Film Festival 

The DYCD Film Festival is the most incredible student film event in New York City. Open to students in grades 6-12, we are now accepting submissions for the 2021 experience that will bring over 25 youth-produced films to your home this Spring. The initiative offers a remarkable journey designed to promote cinema's future and further advance our mission of accessibility – making student films and conversations available at times when hosting large gatherings in person is not possible. The top films will be screened during an action-packed evening filled with resources and entertainment, followed by the DYCD Film Festival Awards Show, where films will be awarded in various categories.
