Compassionate Young Filmmakers International Festival

Compassionate Young Filmmakers International Festival

Dear Compassionate Young Filmmakers,

 

When we first came up with the idea for the CYFI Fest, we had envisioned an international festival, bringing together young creative filmmakers from all around the world to share stories of compassion and hope, stories that would touch hearts and open minds.

 

It was challenging enough figuring out how to organize our first film festival, and even more so with the looming uncertainty of the pandemic.  We thought we could hold a virtual online festival, but we’ve finally come to the difficult decision to postpone the first CYFI Fest until we can safely work together, create together, and be together in the same space.

 

But don’t worry, CYFI Fest isn’t going away!  We’re still working hard to get bring you the best possible experience, so keep checking back with us for the latest news and announcements...and keep creating with compassion!

 

Be well and stay safe,

The CYFI Fest Team
