Screening: Cal State LA Community Impact Media Documentaries Spring 2023

  • Thu 18 May 2023
  • 8 – 9 pm

In collaboration with The California State University Los Angeles Television, Film, and Media Department, join us at Hauser & Wirth Downtown Los Angeles for a screening of three student-directed short films featuring nonprofit organizations in Southern California dedicated to arts education, enhancing diversity within dance and fostering youth mentorship programs.

The screening is the culmination of the semester-long Cal State LA course, Community Impact Media. This year's students focused on women-led nonprofits through documenting the work of organizations: Greetings from South CentralNancy Evans Dance Theatre and The Collective Identity Mentoring.

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.
