Open only to filmmakers 21 years old and younger, the Josiah Media Festival is URBAN-15’s annual nationwide film and media event. It is named after Josiah Miles Neundorf, a talented film and media artist from San Antonio, Texas who passed away in 2006 as a result of osteosarcoma. Despite his short twenty years with us, Josiah expanded the lives of those around him through his brilliance, joy, and determination to create outstanding work amid the physical ravages of illness. In honor of this artist, his parents Marcus and Nancy Neundorf and the URBAN-15 Group created the Josiah Media Festival, an annual film festival designed to showcase outstanding works by young film, video, and media artists.
Now in its 11th year, the Josiah Media Festival is one of the longest running youth film festivals in the United States! This year’s Josiah Media Festival will take place October 6th, 7th & 8th and will be held at the URBAN-15 Studio in San Antonio, TX. Check below for more information on this year’s festival.
