A Workshop for Emerging Filmmakers
Piloted in 2014 as part of its smART program series and in conjunction with its annual Viet Film Fest, VAALA presents Youth In Motion: A Workshop for Emerging Filmmakers. This program is being offered by VAALA to support young voices, stories, and perspectives in the Vietnamese community through the art of digital films. Workshop participants will explore and learn basic skills and tools for digital filmmaking and work collaboratively to produce short films that will premiere at the 2018 Viet Film Fest. Participants will have the opportunity to learn about the production process – from storytelling to camera work to editing – and put their skills to practice. Some sessions will include guest speakers from the local film community. The workshop is free and prioritizes those with no previous experience in film!
This year’s program will emphasize the themes of social justice and community to encourage participants to think critically about the world they live in and how to use storytelling and filmmaking as a way to highlight and share their stories and the stories of their communities.
