Submissions for 2018 are now open and close on April 17th 2018.

Please use the form below to submit your film.

We are looking for films that will contribute to an engaging, thought provoking, uplifting, emotional, questionable, youth oriented program that will ignite debate and help form friendships.

If your film is selected to screen at the AIYFF, you will need to provide us with a DCP copy of the film, as well as a full HD file delivered to our address on either USB, or uploaded via Dropbox or WeTransfer. Alternatively you can make your film files downloadable via the Film Freeway submission platform.  Final selected films will need need to reach us by no later than the 10th July, 2018. Failure to do so may result in your film not screening at the festival.

If you are having difficulties with providing a DCP, we can create one for you at a cost of $20 per film. You must provide us with a copy of your film in full HD 1920 x 1080p for this to happen.

Our Postal Address is:

Adelaide International Youth Film Festival
Attn: Film Submissions 2018

54 Hyde Street, Adelaide SA 5000

If your film is fairly long (8-10 minutes), and you wish to upload it during your application, you may need to compress it to reduce its size to smaller than 300MB. There are many ways to do this without reducing quality.
