What do Uruguayan teens competing in robotics, a flatulent Dutch piglet, and a queer Canadian tween comic book enthusiast all have in common? They’re just some of the inspiring characters (yes, even that pig!) whose stories we’ll be sharing with you during MVFF45, both in-theater and online. Along with dozens of short films and the latest work by youth filmmakers from many corners of the world, this year’s joyful and eclectic mix of cinematic experiences is a unique opportunity for exploration for audiences of every age. Join us for films, parties, workshops, and much more!
