2014 ViewFinders Festival

The 13th annual ViewFinders: Atlantic Film Festival for Youth takes place from April 6th - 12th 2014. Not only a nod to the optical lens of a camera, our festival is called ViewFinders because we truly believe cinema can teach young people how to find themselves and their identity.
