The male interviewer has short curly hair and a goatee. He is wearing a black
blazer.

He says WE'RE HERE AT THE TORONTO
INTERNATIONAL TEEN MOVIE
FESTIVAL WITH ONE OF
THE CO-FOUNDERS, JOHN.
NOW, WHAT INSPIRED YOU
TO PUT ON THIS EVENT?

Jonathan has red hair and is clean-shaven. He wears a dark black and brown
necklace and a zip up dark green sweater.

A caption reads “Jonathan. International Teen Movie Festival.”

A fast clip shows a close up of a medicine bottle, a kid jumping mid-air, a
campfire with a massive flame, a group of kids talking, and then one kid staring
at the camera with dark sunglasses and a jacket.

Jonathan says THIS EVENT WAS CREATED
BECAUSE WE WANTED TO HAVE A
FORUM FOR ANYONE WHO WAS 19
AND UNDER TO SHOW OFF THEIR
ARTISTRY AND THEIR WORK.
THEIR FILMS, THEIR MUSIC
VIDEOS, PRODUCTIONS, WEBSITES,
YOU KNOW, PSAs, EVERYTHING.
AND THE REASON THAT IT WAS
CREATED WAS WE WANTED TO HAVE
A LAUNCHING PAD FOR YOUNG TEENS
AND KIDS TO SHOW OFF THEIR WORK.
I WAS A TEEN IN THE
ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY SEVEN
YEARS AGO, AND I KNEW IT WAS
SOMETIMES A LITTLE WORK TO GET
YOUR STUFF SEEN AND TO
GET RECOGNITION FOR IT.
SO WE SAID, HEY, LET'S
CREATE THIS THING.

The clip continues to a kid breakdancing and spinning on the ground, another kid
blowing an aerosol can into fire and lastly screaming in a pasture with tall
grass.

Jonathan says LET'S CREATE A WORLDWIDE
FORUM AND A LAUNCHING PAD FOR
FUTURE CAREERS, AND A
RIGHT OF PASSAGE INTO THE
ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY SO YOU
CAN HAVE THESE PEOPLE SAY,
OH, OKAY, SO THAT'S YOUR
FILM, THIS IS WHO YOU ARE.
THIS IS THE BIGGEST TEEN
EVENT ON THE PLANET.
AND I'M SAYING THIS BECAUSE I
KNOW THIS THING IS GOING TO
CONTINUE TO BE
ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC.

Fast clip continues showing pieces of movies: a tent at night, a person entering
a window and one student walking down a school hallway.

Jonathan says I AM VERY PROUD TO SAY THAT
THIS IS GOING TO GO ON FOR
MANY, MANY YEARS TO COME, TO
SUPPORT THIS YOUNG ARTISTRY
AND TO MAKE SURE THAT THESE
TEENS KNOW THERE IS A PLACE
FOR THEM TO SHOW THEIR WORK
AND TO DECIDE WHETHER OR NOT
THE ENTERTAINMENT
INDUSTRY IS FOR THEM.

A slate appears and it reads “For information on the International Teen Movie
Festival Visit www.hiltz2.com.”
