The CineYouth Film Festival is sponsored by the Chicago International Film Festival and is held annually at Columbia College in Chicago. The CineYouth Film Festival is unique because it is one of a few festivals in the nation that focuses on the talents of young and aspiring filmmakers, while at the same time providing the opportunity for these individuals to grow and learn. Individuals, groups or organizations that represent filmmakers under the age of 20 may submit films from around the country for consideration by the CineYouth jury, which is comprised of Columbia College film students.

Young filmmakers can enter their films in a number of categories for consideration, including animation, documentary, essay, drama, comedy, music video, public service and experimental film. Awards are given out in each category, as well as in the age groups of 0-15 years and 16-20.

Taking place over the course of two days, the CineYouth Film Festival screens in excess of 100 films, and also offers workshops for participants. Workshops are conducted by teachers and professionals connected to film and include a wide array of learning opportunities. Prior workshops have been focused on special effects, scenic design, editing, story development, storyboards and casting.
