Our Inglewood filmmaking students' recent film 'The Last Shift' has been selected for another prestigious festival, the Miami 4 Social Change Youth Film Festival!
The 8th Annual Miami 4 Social Change Youth Film Festival is a media empowerment and social change platform to showcase and elevate the voices of today's youth through film, and inspire young people to create change using the art of cinema and filmmaking. This festival enhances URGENT, Inc's mission to empower young creative minds to transform their lives and communities.
The transformational power of combining individual skill-building. education and the arts provide youth the opportunity to learn and demonstrate new competencies while positively engaging in their community. Moreover, youth are motivated and encouraged to learn and gain the information shared throughout the festival, raise awareness around community issues, and then share it with a broad audience of their peers.
