Winners of the 2020 Young Filmmakers Contest Announced

It’s a wrap! The winners of the fourth annual Young Filmmakers Contest hosted by JASNA’s Southwest Region have been selected, and their short films will be screened in a virtual premiere on January 24, 2021.

This year’s competition was the most successful yet, with amateur filmmakers from across North America competing in two age categories: under 20 and 20+. The assignment was to create an original short of five minutes or less centered around Jane Austen. The submissions were judged by an outstanding panel of filmmakers and critics.

YFC WinnersJoin JASNA Southwest for the free world premiere of the six winning entries. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with the filmmakers and several of the celebrity judges. After the premiere, the videos will also be available on JASNA Southwest’s YouTube channel.

For more information and a list of the winners and judges, visit the JASNA Southwest website. To attend the online premiere, which will take place in a Zoom meeting, register here.

Congratulations to the winning filmmakers!
