Come and enjoy this collection of films made by young Kingston filmmakers at the Youth Shorts Program! I am genuinely amazed by all of the talents behind these shorts and the time and effort they dedicated to making the films under the pandemic. With each creator having a unique story to tell, this collection is comprised of shorts with different themes, aesthetics, and styles, and they substantially demonstrate the creativity and enthusiasm of the young artists in Kingston. I am deeply honoured to share these great shorts with you! – Raven Zhao, programmer
