Youth participants will have the opportunity to SHARE their work and CREATE media inspired by the work of their peers. Topics will include homelessness, identity, education reform, immigration, bullying and others. Workshops will be 100% hands on. Participants will learn scriptwriting, acting, spoken word, narrative and documentary filmmaking technique and will work collaboratively to complete media projects by the end of the day. The Summit will culminate with a SHOWCASE of participants’ work – this event will take place in the Great Hall at the Silver Spring Civic Center at 5pm on August 7th and will be advertised to the general public.
No filmmaking experience necessary to participate! For more information or if you would like to submit your film to be considered for the Summit Showcase, please contact Laurel Gwizdak –firstname.lastname@example.org or Keri Rasmussen – email@example.com
