2017 YDA Premiere Announced


Join the Youth Documentary Academy’s newest class of filmmakers at the premiere screening of their films on November 4th, 2017 at the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center at Colorado College.

Since the founding of the Youth Documentary in 2013, dozens of young people in the Colorado Springs area have received fellowships totaling $200,000 to train intensively in documentary filmmaking. The breadth of their work has been phenomenal and YDA, along with our partners at the Bemis School of Art and the Rocky Mountain Women’s Film Institute, is proud to showcase another collection of extraordinary works produced by the next generation of filmmakers from our region.


This event is Free to attend, but we are always grateful and suggest a donation of $10 for adults and $4 for students to help cover costs of the evening.  

NOTE:  In an effort to pack the house, all empty seats will be filled promptly at 6:30 pm.  Please plan to arrive 10-15 minutes early to find your seats.  Walk up tickets will be issued first come, first served.
