New and exciting opportunities are being created for our youth. TIFF has announced the launch of the Jump Cuts Talent Labs, which is a part of TIFF's Next Wave Film Festival for kids in grades 9 through 12. It is designed to unleash and show off the creativity and imagination in the next generation of filmmakers and offers young adults the opportunity to work with Jump Cuts alumni, as well as industry professionals teaching about Filmmaking and Activism, The Art of the Music Video and many more. In addition, the finalists have been announced for the Jump Cuts Young Filmmakers Showcase, a short film competition open to youth in Ontario. It includes 20 short films and 46 filmmakers who have produced films in all sorts of genres such as animation and documentaries, that cover areas such as mental illness, bullying and so much more. Screenings will take place Friday May 11 at 12:15 p.m. and Saturday May 12 at 3:15 p.m. at the TIFF Bell Lightbox.
