2016 featured the pilot version of PAAFF’s Youth Media Workshop, made possible through an exciting collaboration with PhillyCAM, Philadelphia’s public access television station.

Spanning July 18-22, 2016 our week-long intensive workshop used a similar format to Center for Asian American Media’s Muslim Youth Voices Project, encouraging youth ages 12-18 to tell stories from their own unique perspectives. Providing an even balance of media literacy education and practical production tutorial, the end product of this summer workshop is a series of five short films, which will be premiered here at PAAFF’16.

Free to the participants, we hope to expand this program to more AAPI youth and perhaps other immigrant communities in a future iteration.

After the screening, youth filmmakers will have a chance to participate in a Q&A, along with Program Facilitator Ariel Taylor.

Films shown will include works by: Gallant Abidinm, Joshua Hite, Justin Lee, Darlene Leohansson, George Wu, Jenny Wu
