YouthFX screenings at The Madison

Make It Float by Aden Suchak, a short doc from last year about local designer Taofeek Abijako (he was recently featured in NYT).

There's another chance -- a bunch of chances, actually -- to catch the latest crop of films from the award-winning YouthFX program coming up next week at the Madison Theater in Albany.

The Madison will be screening the new slate of short films at multiple times from June 8-11. Admission is just $5.

That Saturday, June 10, at 7 pm will be a special screening -- YouthFX filmmakers and crew will be there for a Q&A following the screening.

And Sunday, June 11, at 2 pm there will be screening of the Which Way Is Home series of films that look at the concept of home for range of young people in Albany.

What is YouthFX? About blurbage:

Youth FX is an intensive hands-on program, based in the City of Albany, that is designed to empower youth aged 14-19 by teaching them the technical and creative aspects of digital film making and offering a thorough overview of the production process from script to screen. Our primary mission is to work with diverse groups of young people from communities that have been historically under-served and in need of opportunities for training and engagement in emerging media technologies. Youth FX develops leadership, creativity, and critical thinking, through the collaborative process of digital filmmaking and media production.

The students in the program have turned out a lot of good work, some of which has won awards at film festivals around the country.

A trio of YouthFX films will also be appearing in the upcoming season of WMHT's TVFilm series.
