CELEBRATE THE POWER OF THE YOUTH MEDIA MOVEMENT!
Media offers a megaphone to the hearts and minds of young people. Come see the best of their work!
Witness the wisdom and talent of New York State filmmakers during the NY Shout Out! Youth Media Festival, at 7pm. The excitement grows as many youth participants return for their third year as presenting artists and “peer trainers.” These young media makers will publicly present their work, and speak about their process and craft. With this festival, youth use digital media tools to create compelling stories about issues and concerns important to them, sharing their personal experiences living in the Capital Region and NY State.
POTLUCK PRECEDES FILM FEST AT 6 PM
Help feed and meet the youth media makers and network with youth media organizations, at a community potluck at 6 pm. Participants include Youth Media Sanctuary, Youth FX, Tech Valley High School, Peers Educating Peers, Children’s Media Project, Squeaky Wheel and more! Youth radio reporters from Hudson’s WGXC/Radio Explosion will be streaming live throughout the day.
