Windsor cityscapeFilm student Gemma Cunial invites entries to the Windsor Youth Short Film Showcase.

Project issues call for short films by Windsor youth

Gemma Cunial, an MFA student of film and media arts, is calling on young aspiring filmmakers to submit their works for a new project to present their talents. The Windsor Youth Short Film Showcase is a livestream screening for films by residents of Windsor-Essex between the ages of 13 and 24 years.

“This is an opportunity to give young filmmakers a platform to present their films and to be recognized across the community for their work,” says Cunial.

The project has received a grant from the city’s Arts, Culture & Heritage Fund under its enhanced program in response to COVID-19.

Entries are welcome through May 20, and selections will be screened over social media from June 5 to 12. Viewers will vote for a series of audience choice awards. Find details on the project website.
