YDA Entry Period Extended

In light of the effects of the coronavirus pandemic and a last-minute surge in entries, the Young Directors Award have decided to extend the entry period of YDA 2020. The deadline for YDA submissions is now Friday 5th June 2020.

YDA is going ahead this year as an online event. The international jury of top producers, creatives, directors and entertainment industry professionals will complete judging remotely, and the winners will be announced and celebrated via an online broadcast on Thursday 30th July.

Sixteen categories across YDA 2020 cover the majority of filmmaking styles and formats, among which two new categories have been introduced: “Best Use of Humour”, which celebrates storytelling through humour, and “Dreampitch”, which is a new type of category that celebrates great ideas that are yet to be made into films.
