2020 has been an extraordinary year for all of us, and at YDA it was no exception. It has been a year of firsts, with our ceremony leaving Cannes for the first time in our 23-year history and becoming online only. The Covid-19 pandemic forced us to adapt, with our passionate judges discussing films over Zoom, and YDA Week replacing our normal schedule of events.
In our quest to support up and coming talent, we’ve always aimed to be innovative, and 2020 has proved we can survive, and thrive, through anything – YDA is stronger now than ever. So whatever 2021 brings, join us for another year of celebrating and showcasing young directorial talent.
If you missed it, you can watch our 2020 Ceremony online, and watch out for interviews with our 2020 winners.
