Nantucket Community Television cultivates young filmmakers who want to enter their work in the Nantucket Film Festival’s Annual Teen View Showcase.

Since 2000, the Nantucket Film Festival has presented the Teen View Showcase that celebrates student films that were conceived, created and developed under the training and guidance of NCTV18 staff.

The 2018 Teen View Showcase event was held at Bennett Hall in downtown Nantucket. Twelve films were presented to a sold-out audience. Festival guidelines require that all films must be under 10 minutes in length, and made by Nantucket students.

In the Teen View Program, students learn the skills to develop, write, shoot and edit their own films. Students have to complete a prerequisites series of instructional workshops offered at the media center every winter and spring. Their completed short films had their premiere during Nantucket Film Festival’s Teen View Showcase.

“It was really exciting to witness the student’s process start with a larger-than-life blockbuster idea and watch them go through the learning process of developing a film idea that would be both practical and fulfilling,” explained Andrew Cromartie, NCTV Film & Editing Instructor, adding, “it’s really exciting to work with such energetic and creative individuals and I am elated to see how they grow as filmmakers in the coming year.”

The Teen View Showcase, has become a cherished part of the Nantucket Film Festival, in recent years was airing locally on Comcast channel 18.  To watch past Teen View Films, NCTV On-demand or the NCTV YouTube channel.
