Finding Inspiration in Every Frame
The Cleveland International Kids Film Fest is a division of The Young Filmmakers Academy based in Cleveland, Ohio. YFA is a nonprofit organization dedicated to inspiring kids and teens to express themselves in a safe and inclusive environment using film as a catalyst.
Every year, 40 kids ages 10-17, gather for three weeks to Write, Direct and Edit a short film under the tutelage and mentoring of real Hollywood filmmakers who have worked on such projects as The Fast & The Furious, The Avengers, Captain America, The Enormity of Life, Modern Family, Frasier and more.
CIKFF is a celebration of what our students and thousands of kids just like them can achieve artistically, technically and socially. We are constantly inspired by what inspires you.
