Premiere: Cal State LA Community Impact Media Documentaries

  • Thu 12 December 2019
  • 7.30 pm

In collaboration with the California State University Los Angeles Television, Film, and Media Department, join us for the premiere of two student-directed short films featuring LA-based nonprofits Inner City Law Center and Media Done Responsibly. Through the eyes of the Cal State LA students, learn how these local organizations are promoting equitable legal services and accessible media literacy training for marginalized communities in Los Angeles. The premiere screening is the culmination of the semester-long Cal State LA course, Community Impact Media. Community Impact Media, a shared project between the university and the gallery, provides Cal State LA students 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.
