Ed Video will run a new Teen Film Club where avid youth can come together on an ongoing basis to work on projects that explore identity and storytelling through film. The collaborative nature of video is perfectly suited for building new personal connections, sharing perspectives, promoting belonging, and is also an integral part of how modern youth communicate. We hope to create a sustained and regenerative program composed of a diverse group of young people. By encouraging youth from a variety of backgrounds we hope to foster not only filmmaking skills but also friendships.
Our history and experience in video education makes us uniquely positioned to offer this programming. This funding will help us to build the program with equipment, mentors, and outreach to immigrant and refugee communities. The program will begin in fall 2017.
