The Youth Queer Media Program (YQMP) gives audiences the opportunity to look through the eyes of our emerging filmmakers, and gives the filmmakers the tools and resources to share their perspective. This annual program runs December – March for youth ages 16-24 and provides the time and tools to create a short film, including workshops with industry professionals in storyboarding, editing, filming, and production at EMMEDIA. The program culminates in the world premiere of the films at the Fairy Tales Queer Film Festival in May.
