Be The Media! Workshop With John Olshefski and Sabrina Schmidt Gordon: Cinéma Vérité for Human Rights

December 9, 2017 @ 4:00 pm 5:00 pm EST

An in-depth discussion of the art and technique of cinéma vérité with award winning Quest director, John Olshefski, and producer, Sabrina Schmidt Gordon, in collaboration with Albany’s Youth FX media makers. And join us later that evening for a screening of Quest featuring a talkback with the director and producer.


Be The Media! workshops teach multimedia skills to community members in order to develop urgently needed independent local voices. Our goal is to empower the public through independent media making, supplying them with the tools to tell their own stories through different mediums of media including video, radio and journalism.

We are committed to lowering the barriers to access for events at The Sanctuary for Independent Media. For people who are hard of hearing or deaf, blind or low-vision, or whose physical limitations can interfere with a satisfying experience, let us know two weeks in advance so we can make appropriate arrangements.
