Nazareth College and 360 | 365 Film Festival are ready to showcase the 12 finalists in a special screening during the 2011 Rochester Teen Film Festival, a collaborative, juried media competition for youth in the Rochester region. The finalists were selected out of 63 entries from 13-18 year olds in the greater Rochester area. The 12 teen filmmakers will be at the festival at the Little Theatre on August 3, at 5:30 p.m., to present their films, and judges will then decide who receives "Best of the Fest" awards. A free reception also follows the screening at the Little Theatre Cafe. All finalist films will also be shown at the 360 | 365 Film Festival in 2012.

The Rochester Teen Film Festival is an annual celebration of youth filmmakers, which honors the work of urban, suburban and rural teenagers. An integral part of Nazareth’s and 360 | 365’s mission is education of Upstate New York youth and emerging filmmakers. The festival gives teenagers the opportunity to share their stories with each other and the Greater Rochester Community.
360 | 365 interactively engages filmmakers and film-loving audiences in education, discovery and celebration through the medium of film in all aspects and directions, 365 days a year. The organization, located in the very birthplace of motion picture film, Rochester, N.Y., encourages amateur shorts filmmaking with its Shorts Contests, hosts conversations with filmmakers via its New Director Series, and culminates its efforts in an annual five-day Film Festival.
