AFF Youth is jam-packed with the very best of local and international screen content, insightful industry sessions, and an exciting Creative Industries Expo, where students and teachers can meet screen production companies and tertiary institutions, to help students map their pathway to the creative industries.

AFF Youth is also for the young at heart, with an exciting screen program open for all to attend. There’s a huge variety of feature films, documentaries and shorts packages, covering contemporary issues such as diversity, the status of girls, First Nations politics and the vulnerability of children in crisis zones and political struggle.
