The International Youth Silent Film Festival (IYSFF) NZ Nationals 2019

The search is on to discover the best young Kiwi filmmakers with the return of the International Youth Silent Film Festival. The IYSFF competition challenges filmmakers from across America, Australia, NZ and United Emirates to create a 3 minute silent film set to 10 different musical scores created especially for the festival. The NZ National Red Carpet Celebration will be held at Baycourt Community Arts Centre, Tauranga on April 17th 2019 where the selected top 10-15 Nationwide short films will all be screened with each film featuring musical accompaniment from the IYSFF music composer Nathan Avakian, who will travel to Tauranga from New York, USA to perform the film's soundtrack live on the Bays 1926 Mighty Wurlitzer Theatre Organ.
