The Barbican Young Programmers are a group of film critics, filmmakers and budding programmers aged 16–25 who have been developing their film programming skills at the Barbican through mentorship with filmmaker Suzy Gillett. In 2019 they will be curating the annual Chronic Youth Film Festival, a festival programmed, run and presented by and for young people.

Youth Invisible: Shorts from the undiscovered

Made a short film that urgently needs exposure?

The Barbican Young Programmers are currently looking for original shorts submissions which will be shown at the shorts lounge as part of the 2019 festival. They are looking for shorts from aspiring filmmakers that, as of now, have been invisible to the world. They particularly want to hear from anyone with something new to say.
