Young Moviemakers Media Release

Dear Parent/Caregiver,

    Due to the nature of our programs, all of our films are uploaded onto our Young Moviemakers YouTube account. Only first names are included in our credits on YouTube; however, some festival entries and other exceptions may ask for last names. We understand that there may be some concerns regarding releasing images onto YouTube but unfortunately, this is the best way we can share and distribute films to participants. If Young Moviemakers does not receive media consent for each participant, please be aware that we must find a way to hide your child’s images on camera by avoiding filming them directly or putting them in a mask.

    If you have any concerns or further questions regarding media release and posting content online, please do not hesitate to contact us directly at
