In addition you’ll see an amazing piece from the youth artists that won our first ever Philly TV Festival future producer award. Princesses vs. Dinosaurs written, directed and shot by two sisters 7 and 5 years old. Thanks Rio and Rome Roulhac for your great addition to our festival semi-finalists submissions episode.
