Welcome! My name is Monte Chetkof, and I am currently a senior high school student at The Woodstock Day School. As a senior, I am embarking on a year-long project. Many people from my school decide to make films as their projects, but I wanted to take a different route, so I decided to produce a film festival instead. What is Ulster County Youth Film Festival’s goal? My goal is to bring students and adults together to appreciate films created by the youth in Ulster County. As teenagers, especially during the pandemic, it can be hard for our voices to be heard. With the use of this event, we hope to voice and publicize the opinions and work done by local student filmmakers for future collaborations, and to create network opportunities.
