Youth Producing Change Film Festival

"'Youth Producing Change' screening is the first ever program of youth-produced films on human rights at the Human Rights Watch International Film Festival. As part of this exciting initiative we will be hosting the YOUTH PRODUCING CHANGE World Premiere and a free video production workshop for teens. 10 young filmmakers will be traveling to attend the festival from as far as Boston, Brooklyn, Haida Gwaii Canada, Kentucky and South Africa.

A program of 9 short films directed and produced by youth from across the globe. Armed with digital cameras, computers and their own boundless creativity - these young people bravely expose human rights issues faced by themselves and their communities. It's time that we listen to what they have to say.

Please join us in celebrating the power of young people to make a difference:
Friday, June 20th @ 6:30; Saturday, June 21st @ 1:30PM (Video Workshop @ 11AM with MNN Youth Channel).
