Under the motto “presentation matters”, the Cine Youth Fest 2022 opened its call for applications for young Latinos to participate in this film competition, with which they can contribute to representation but also win prizes.

This festival is celebrating its second edition and you can participate digitally from anywhere in the country.

The call for entries is aimed at young Latino filmmakers aged 16 and over who must submit a short film in English or Spanish with a maximum length of 30 minutes.

Although the call for entries is open until September 11th, registration after July 30th is subject to a fee, so you can still take advantage of the last days of the free call for entries. Cine Youth Fest 2022 is looking for Latino youth to achieve greater representation in the film industry. According to a study by the Latino Donor Collaborative, Latinos make up 18.7% of the United States population, but only 5.5% of the overall representation in films and series. “With the goal of supporting young Latino talent on their journey to a more diverse and inclusive film industry, non-profit media company HITN created the film festival,” the Cine Youth Fest said in a statement. The festival runs from October 9-16, 2022 and coincides with the conclusion of Latino Heritage Month.

Entries must be Latinas and Latinos in creative leadership positions, either in front of or behind the camera. As the central axis of this year’s competition is representation, works are required to relate to four themes: Participation, Prosperity, Collaboration and Wellbeing. The best suggestions are available on CineYouthFest.org and on the HITN GO app. On this website you can register and see all the details of the competition. The prices are:

First place: $4,000 Second place: $2,000 Third place: $1,000 From July 31 to August 20 the registration fee is $20 and from August 21 to September 11 it is $25. YOU MAY ALSO INTEREST: Latinx: an inclusive or offensive word?
