From all over the world these stellar youth-produced shorts have wended their ways to us, from the northern reaches of Marin County and out to the East Bay, in from the southern sunshine of Los Angeles and the out-east of Illinois and Virginia, blowing down from Nova Scotia and British Columbia, swimming in from the salmon fisheries of Sweden and the big-pond island of Great Britain. Every year in July, jurors aged 13 to 18 spend two weeks training for, then officiating, our young curators program. With the gentlest adult guidance, this year’s jurors-Justine Marler, Lachlin Lipscomb, Clayton Allen, Sophie Keaney, Ravi Joshi-Wander, Cole Lederer, and Aaron Davis-sifted through 140 films to come up with these 20. This is the most diverse youth reel we’ve ever presented and has many gems that even a seasoned pro could be proud of. We thank YoungCuts of Montreal for their participation. Ages 13+
