Thank you for joining us for our 2024 Future Filmmakers Festival! Students from these schools have worked with local professionals to combine writing informative narratives with filming and editing. Through this program these young artists have created cohesive narratives exploring visions of peace and detailing the challenges and champions they see in their communities.

This film festival includes a 1-hour screening of film projects followed by a 30 minute Q&A with our participants.
