It was so great having our inaugural YES Awards (Young Emerging filmmakers Showcase) IN-PERSON! In addition to screening the 6 short films, 5 of the 6 filmmakers were in attendance to introduce their films & answer questions post-screening about their inspiration, the process & their future plans. 🙌🏼
The jury selected AGUANTE as the winner of the YES award & filmmaker Dominick Torres of Wheaton College Massachusetts was presented with a check on the stage at the Firehouse Center for the Arts.
AGUANTE highlights Puerto Rico’s history in its fight to rid gender-based violence on the island. All 6 shirt films will be available to watch for FREE on the NDFF YouTube channel soon…subscribe to us over there for the latest news on videos.
Thank you to the YES Award sponsor Dietz & Lynch Capital, and our audience for helping us celebrate the next generation of filmmakers!
Additional thank you to the Screening Room, City of Newburyport, Greater Newburyport Chamber of Commerce, Newburyport Magazine and the Daily News of Newburyport.
