Last week, the overall winners of the Making Movies that matter Youth Short Film Festival were honored at Los Angeles City Hall. The CD12 Making Movies That Matter: Youth Short Film Festival program allowed hundreds of young film makers from elementary, middle school, high school, and college campuses throughout Council District 12 and the San Fernando Valley to receive mentoring from award-winning artists-in-residence as part of the CalArts Community Arts Partnership.
The themes of social action and civic engagement were reinforced throughout the project and students were able to express themselves in one of four genres: animation, public service announcement, live action, and documentary.
Thank you to all of our partners, the artists-in-residents, students, teachers, and parents for making our Making Movies That Matter: Youth Short Film Festival a success. Congratulations to all of the honorees and schools and a special congratulations to Northridge Middle School for winning the Best Overall Grand Prize. We hope this experience has inspired you all to continue to create quality films that impact others.
