The National Youth Film Awards (NYFA) is a national award that celebrates youths who have excelled across the various aspects of filmmaking – be it content creation and production, script writing, animation, or screenplay writing. It seeks to instil a greater appreciation of independent films, fuel the passion for filmmaking, and generates opportunities for further development for these emerging talents by connecting them with industry partners and helping them gain greater visibility, be it for festivals or commercial opportunities.

Now in its 8th year, NYFA 2022 returns with a spin on the numerical “8”, representing the concept of “infinity”, and a reflection of *SCAPE’s never-ending pursuit to provide opportunities and open up possibilities to aspiring youth filmmakers in Singapore.
