Years running: 22 (since 2001)

Josiah Media Festival

International Media festival.


The Josiah Media Festival is URBAN-15’s annual nationwide film and media event that is open only to filmmakers age 21 and younger. It is named after Josiah Miles Neundorf, a talented 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 works in the midst of the physical ravages from this disease. 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.


Prizes will be awarded to the first-place winners in each of the four film categories! Award certificates and letters will be awarded to the first, second and third-place winners in each of the four film categories with an additional prize awarded to the “Best of Show” winner!
