film rollsOn Friday, July 10 at 7:00 pm the Grey Bruce Youth Film Festival screening will take place via Zoom. Email [email protected] to receive login information for the live event.

Audience members will be treated to a screening of 5 short films created by local students followed by an announcement of this year's winning film. We're also looking forward to being joined by some very special guests.

This year's films include a shady deal, a terrifying panda, the COVID-19 pandemic in Owen Sound, some robots and death by spoon. The Grey Bruce Youth Film Festival provides an opportunity to see the work of young, local, amateur filmmakers. Films screened at the Grey Bruce Youth Film Festival are created for a teen audience and may contain scenes some viewers may find disturbing. Viewer discretion is advised.

The Library would like to gratefully acknowledge the United Way of Bruce Grey and Galaxy Cinemas Owen Sound as the major sponsors of this event as well as the support of the judges and program volunteers.
