AUSTIN — The 2019 UIL Young Filmmakers Festival takes place Tuesday at the Paramount Theatre in downtown Austin. 
Included in the exclusive “Nobelity” group is Cy Ridge filmmakers’ “Segregation.”
Students at UIL member schools submitted original works of film within four categories: Digital Animation, Documentary, Narrative, and Traditional Animation. Films were scored by a panel of judges based on originality, cinematic storytelling, and technical execution.
