Reflections Me: PRO-TV's Media Fellowship Screening

#
Thu, 07/24/2014 - 6:00pm
DCTV 87 Lafayette, Street, NYC

PRO-TV, DCTV's free professional media arts training program, offers NYC youth opportunities to create films, attain skills in digital video production and post-production, as well skills in leadership, team work, project management, research, public speaking, and professional development. It is an invaluable outlet for media literacy, self-advocacy, and social justice through the art of filmmaking.

Join us for a night of new, original documentaries featuring our Senior Media Fellows, our most advanced group of media-makers. In these highly personal films, students turn the camera on themselves, documenting their successes, their failures, and the lessons they are learning as they reflect on their lives. As a special bonus we will also be screening a selection of films from our Junior and Intermediate Fellows.

Please join us this evening to celebrate the work of these emerging artists!

Post-Screening Q&A

Following the screening students will answer questions from the audience about their films, their process, and their experience in the Media Fellowship Program.
