10th Annual Urban Visionaries Youth Film Festival

Celebrate the 10th Annual Urban Visionaries Youth Film Festival on Thursday, March 29 and Friday, March 30, 2007.
Urban Visionaries is New York City’s only film festival produced, promoted, and presented by youth. The festival features documentary, fiction, PSA’s, and experimental pieces made by youth filmmakers exploring issues critical to youth, including: hip hop, art, community, culture,
violence, sexuality, and more. Come check out the films, youth performers, Q+A with filmmakers, video slam, and after party. Also, featuring a special Media EXPO on Saturday, 3/24 at Manhattan Neighborhood Network.
The Youth Committee proudly presents the following three packages featuring 25 films as part of this year’s program:
Package title: STUCK IN NEUTRAL
(Screening times: THURSDAY 10-12pm and FRIDAY 1-3pm)
What is normal? How does one define the term? These films question and confront the ideas and stereotypes surrounding the concept of normality. Is there really such a thing as normal?
Package title: DEAL WIT IT
(Screening times: THURSDAY 1-3pm and FRIDAY 4-6pm)
“Deal Wit It” is about what happens in our communities, families, and schools. The pieces reflect issues in our society, sometimes showing the ugly truths that surround us. The films challenge us to ask, “What should we do about them?”
Package title: SKULTURE
(Screening time: FRIDAY 10-12pm)
Prepare yourself to experience a mind-expanding group of films that are guaranteed to inspire. Skulture is a brain blower, experimenting with different forms of art involving skating, culture, expression, heritage, and more.
Open call to all youth media makers! Bring a mini-DV copy (with DVD backup) of your work at 3pm, cued to the place you want it to begin, and screen up to 3 min. before a live audience! RSVP recommended at rsvp@listenup.org.
