Set up to promote and celebrate youth filmmakers, the National Youth Film Awards (NYFA) is a national award that seeks to instill a greater appreciation of film, fuel the passion for filmmaking, and generate opportunities to further develops and exhibits youth talents who are highly adept in their respective fields across the various aspects of filmmaking in Singapore. To date, more than 1,000 submissions have been received across the Media Student and Open Youth categories.

For four years running (since its inception in 2015), NYFA has provided youths with recognition, validation, and industry network, in addition to the platform to showcase their talents in film. Regardless of background, *SCAPE hopes to encourage all youths to explore their interests and provide the opportunities to acquire the skills and network needed to establish their footing. Apart from that, NYFA also acts as an enabler for filmmakers to find partners and collaborators to work on future projects.

NYFA is an important stepping stone in these emerging filmmakers’ journey, and through it, they get to connect with industry partners and gain greater visibility, be it for festivals or commercial opportunities.

The annual awards ceremony is held at *SCAPE Ground Theatre and graced by Ms Grace Fu, Minister for Culture, Community and Youth as the Guest-of-Honour. In 2018, 28 awards were presented to recognise 21 winning films and 41 individual winners. A total of 450 guests comprising government, sponsors, schools and industry representatives were present at the ceremony.

About NYFA 2019

Since its inception in 2015, NYFA has been cultivating a community of likeminded media enthusiasts, and is the connecting point for youths to network and collaborate. Through NYFA, some of our alumni have been commissioned for various video campaigns by corporate and industry partners such as Adobe, PAVE and SONY.

Together with industry partners, veterans, and institutes of higher learning, the NYFA programme is designed to spark deeper conversations amongst likeminded individuals and hone their crafts in filmmaking. NYFA supports artistic works from both aspiring and professional filmmakers and is committed to nurture the aspiration, vision, and creative spirit of these youths.
