ONLY THE YOUNG

Befriend Only The Young on facebook!

“We are so greatful for True/False Film Festival for believing in Only The Young! An amazing article by Cinescope “….a film with no track record or advance word (and with rejections from several major US festivals under its belt, as I later discovered) premiered and proved to be one of the freshest and most assured debuts in recent memory. God (and apparently numerous foolish programmers) only knows why Only the Young, an ingratiating and entertaining profile of three suburban Christian skate-punks, hadn’t premiered on a bigger stage, but True/False has made a habit of presenting artistically adventurous documentary films in the best possible light. By the end of the four-day weekend, the pocket-sized festival’s nimble and ecumenical slate made those of the big brother festivals seem small (or at least small-minded) by comparison.”” — cine-scope

An amazing festival.

An amazing festival.

Only The Young is in Filmmaker magazine! "Elizabeth Mims and Jason Tippet’s Only The Young is a major feature debut, an unostentiously accomplished teen not-really-coming-of-age tale... Beautifully shot and affectionate without turning cute or coddling, it’s the best possible kind of crowdpleaser."

“"Highly attentive to their unique subcultures, these patient films [Only The Young and Argentinean Lesson] capture small moments that seem too good to be true yet too genuine to be staged or scripted, with an exceptional lyricism not found in most fiction features."

“The magic of “Only the Young” is the characters are too relatable, the storyline too interesting, the film itself too honest to be a documentary. But of course it’s a documentary, because the characters are too well rounded, the storyline too realistic, the film itself too sincere to be anything but a documentary” — Bearing News

indieWIRE interview with Jason, Liz and Derek. "In a field of impressive documentary films at this year's True/False Film Festival, crowds were consistently buzzing about a feature debut that debuted in a sneak preview at the festival."
