Cal State LA Community Engagement Documentaries Premiere

  • Fri Dec 15 2017, 12:00 AM

In collaboration with The California State University Los Angeles Television, Film, and Media Department, join us on Friday 15 December for a screening of four short documentary films, the culmination of the semester-long course Community Impact Media. The student-directed documentaries draw attention to the issues faced by vulnerable communities in Los Angeles and identify initiatives that exist to support their needs. Community Impact Media, a shared project between the university and the gallery, provides neighboring youth with hands-on media making and storytelling mentorship toward the production of video projects written and directed by the student filmmakers. It not only encourages students to reimagine the role of filmmakers as neighbors and citizens committed to meaningful social change, but also illustrates each organization’s commitment to engage and develop a positive, lasting relationship with their shared LA community. This event is free to attend and open to the public, however, due to limited seating, reservations are recommended. Click here to register.
