On Wednesday, August 16, 2017, SAY Sí presents its annual showcase of film projects by youth-filmmakers in its Media Arts Studio.

In SAY Sí’s Media Arts Studio, student artists [ranging from 15-18 years old] are given first hand experience with filmmaking. Students use industry-standard equipment and software to complete their projects, with the finished films sent to film festivals nationwide. For many, this experience is their first step toward a professional career.

This screening includes the short narratives from the High School program, silent shorts from the Middle School program and a series of videos from Project Papalote, a national and international youth collaborations sponsored by Adobe Project 1324.
