The response to this years call for entries has been magnificent – with entries from over 28 different countries the pre-selection team had its work cut out to come up with the first short list.

The judges whose job it was to select from the short lists the top three nominees for each category were very impressed by the body of work in general.



This years IMVF has concentrated mainly on the educational side of things as far as public entry is concerned and due to the high demand for places the IMVF has decided to extend its workshops over a period of 6 months in order that the young people of the island will be able to attend all of them   The list of workshops will be published online post the IMVF live event.

This years YOUNG FILM ACADEMY has the added excitement for participants insofar as the judges of the online competition will be visiting the YFA workshop in order to give their insights and advice on the videos in progress. The judges will also choose the winning team for 2016.
