Young Moviemakers Media Release


Dear Parent/Guardian,

    Due to the nature of our program, 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

I hereby grant Young Moviemakers and their partners, the absolute right and permission to use and re-use, in whole or in part, my name, voice, image, likeness and artworks produced or provided for use during the course of my participation in this and any Young Moviemakers program. Such videos and artwork produced or filmed or made at any point during the program, by or for Young Moviemakers and any program or event, for use in any and all media worldwide in perpetuity for any and all legal purposes, including advertising or promotion, without payment or notice to me.


    I further consent that Young Moviemakers is the owner of all intellectual property rights to the artworks produced during this program, the videos and all film, footage, recording, soundtracks, images and reproductive product (including any digital reproductions) arising out of the videos and artwork (the “Intellectual Property), and I hereby unconditionally wave any and all personal and proprietary right, including all moral rights, that I may have in the Intellectual Property.


    It is understood that any such materials (video, audio, film or any other media) will be used only for the purpose of promoting the program and its participants, at festivals, screenings, broadcast, program promotions and distributions. It is also understood that any such materials will be used with the highest integrity and discretion, with the intent to communicate responsibly and ethically, the subject matter contained therein.
