*SCAPE’s fourth annual National Youth Film Awards (NYFA) is now back and with a brand new Open Youth Category! The NYFA is a national film awards body that aims to promote a culture of national excellence in filmmaking and animation while also recognising youths who are incredibly talented in the many fields within the film industry. With the future of youth never too far from mind, *SCAPE will be holding several filmmaking talks, workshops and masterclasses from February to June 2018.
