The Sarasota Film Festival's Education Department presents our Digital Young Filmmaker's Showcase featuring short films by students from around the world. This showcase is designed specifically for filmmakers ages 18 and younger whose original short films encapsulate the hard work and creativity of young storytellers.

Below are last year's finalists. Congratulations to Gabriela Capestany from Seattle, Washington, whose film CHIPS gathered the most votes and recieved the Young Filmmakers Digital Showcase Award. Check back later to see the 2017 finalists!
