Now in its twelfth year, the high-school division of our popular Jump Cuts competition provides a high-profile showcase for the year's best films by students from grades 9 to 12. Come see this year's finalists, and stick around afterwards for the presentation ceremony for the Gertrude Löwengren Awards for best film in the fiction, documentary, animation and experimental categories.

The finalist films will screen Wednesday, May 22nd and a jury comprised of film industry professionals will select the grand prize-winning film in each grade category.

This year's jury includes: Canadian filmmaker Sara St. Onge, who brought her first feature film Molly Maxwell(2012) to the TIFF Next Wave Film Festival; award-winning filmmaker Stephen Dunn (Swallowed, Life Doesn't Frighten Me); Joel R. McConvey writer and producer at FilmCAN and one of the creators of The National Parks Project, and award-winning filmmaker Richie Mehta (Amal).
