Don Bosco Global Youth Film Festival is a contest for young people between 15 and 30 years old. It's organized by the Salesians. They'll be giving out about $115,000 in cash prizes to films about hope.

“Mister Pipou” is one of the finalists. Filmed in France, it tells the story of a young woman who is stuck at home, alone, during the pandemic.

A total of 1,686 movies were presented at the festival. About 300 were from India and Iran. A total of 116 countries participated.

Angel Fernandez, the rector of the Salesians, explains that the goal of the festival is to promote creativity among young people in a difficult period like the pandemic.

“In these 18 months so heavily burdened by the pandemic and lockdowns everywhere, why not do something to give voice to young people by letting them do what they do best? And that's expressing themselves through music, art and cinema. Today, a young person with a phone can work wonders, something that I, as an older adult, cannot do.”

The presentation highlighted the importance of young people taking advantage of their energy and fresh ideas in this historic moment.

“This initiative has reached the whole world, Salesians and non-Salesians.”

The awards ceremony will be held in Turin, Italy. On Nov. 18 and 19, the finalist movies will be screened. Anyone who is unable to attend can follow the event online.
