The YRFC will launch several fundraising events including training seminars and bootcamps from film industry professionals to develop a local workforce and enable us as a community to join a sustainable industry that already exists in other cities around our region. The YRFC also has plans for a future film academy & film stage.
Your support is critical, and the YRFC is open to creative ideas for future events. Following “The Power of Film” event at the 2014 Canfield Fair, the YRFC will be holding an introduction to the film industry and a job opportunities workshop at a downtown event in the near future. Your contribution is vital toward a sustainable industry that will stimulate creative economic growth for our region. Let’s bring Hollywood home to Youngstown, OH.

Project Young Hollywood believes that Youngstown and the Mahoning Valley need a new, viable industry to spur on the resurgence of the area. An industry not tied to non-renewable resources or environmentally unstable processes.
