What to expect for 2019
This year we opened the festival and encouraged for High School student filmmakers to screen their films. We are collaborating with Reel Works. Reel Works provides free filmmaking workshops in school and after-school for NYC Youth. We will be screening five High School student films from Reel Works alongside other High School students from NYC/NJ area.
We are collaborating with Arts By the People to showcase "Moving Words" for 2019. Moving Words intersects voices of all ages through writers whose submitted works are transformed into short films by animation students. These writers, under the guidance of ARTS By The People’s writing scholar, have their works voice acted and subsequently animated by college students. Their goal is to empower and inspire
writers and animators to tap into their inner creativity and think in terms of visual imagery as well as written word.
