YouthFX 2016 premiere

YouthFX screening 2016 posterThe YouthFX program will be premiering its new slate of films at the Spectrum March 24 at 6:30 pm. Tickets are $10 adults / $5 students. Advance tickets will be available soon, and if you're interesting in going, you should definitely get the tickets ahead of time -- these events have sold out in the past.

Tthe screening of both short documentaries and narrative films will be followed by a Q&A with the filmmakers.

Here's background blurbage on the program:

Youth FX primarily works with young people who reside in the South End, Arbor Hill and West Hill neighborhoods of Albany, NY, areas that have been historically under served and in need of meaningful opportunities for training and engagement in new digital media technology. The skills they are learning not only enables them to be more creative and express their ideas, but they are also valuable skills that are in high demand in today's technology based world. Youth FX participants engage in their communities by creating documentary and short fiction films that reflect their understanding and vision of the world around them.

The teens in the program have done some great work and made it into film festivals around the country. You can check out some past films on the YouthFX Vimeo channel.

I just learned about the Woman's Club of Albany yesterday, during the Holiday House tour. It's a really large space that is chock full of character, and they rent it out for parties of the type Maureen is interested in.
