Learn more about the 2020 East Auckland Youth Film Festival

Submissions close September 11th.

We are excited to announce that applications are now open for the Howick Youth Council’s annual East Auckland Youth Film Festival.


The 2020 Youth Film Festival is a fantastic opportunity for youth passionate about producing creative films to have their work showcased at Monterey Cinemas, with last year’s showing resulting in a sold out theatre and over 100 attendees.


This year’s showcase will take place on Friday 2nd October, from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM at Monterey Cinemas in Howick Village.


All films will be critically judged, providing an opportunity for the youth of East Auckland to explore and expand on their creativity, with the provided feedback.


To be eligible, the films must have been created between 2019 and 2020 with a maximum length of eight minutes. These films may be previous submissions for NCEA assessments or personal projects.
