This year’s slate of Youth FX films take a deep and complex look at issues of race, juvenile justice, bullying, modern day communication, love, and the realities of refugee youth living in Albany.  The bulk of the films were produced as part of the 2015 Youth FX summer program where 38 young people ages 14-22 explored the technical and creative aspects of filmmaking and digital media.  Youth FX will also debut its first full length album at the event, which features 10 tracks of original music that was also produced during the summer program. 

Films premiering will include six new narrative shorts including Guilt Trip, a story, filmed in one take, of two cousins who face a dilemma after committing a crime to help their grandfather, Shot, a provocative look at racial profiling of black youth, Manhunt, a dark glimpse at the consequences of bullying, A Moment Ago, a clever time-travel comedy, Brothers, a dramatic unraveling of family secrets and Nightmare of My Dreams, our first ever Youth FX animated short.  New documentaries explore juvenile justice through the lens of the local Marquis Dixon case (Marquis), a raw and honest look at bullying (Finding Strength), a critical look at how we communicate today (Evolution of Communication) and a story of local refugee youth from Libya (Sara).

One Youth FX documentary film that will be shown at the premiere, Make It Float, will be getting some huge exposure next month at the prestigious Tribeca Film Festival (TFF).  A collaboration between Youth FX filmmaker Aden Suchak and Albany High School fashion designer Taofeek Abijako, the documentary was one of 5 films, out of 250 submissions nationwide, selected to screen at the Tribeca Film Festival as part of The America I Am, a new TFF youth program in partnership with The Statue of Liberty National Monument.
