Outside the Box, Inside the Screen: Student Short Films

Jun 1, 2018, 7pm
Join us for a selection of short films created by teenage filmmakers in response to the upcoming exhibition, To Be Thirteen: Photographs and Video by Betsy Schneider. As the portraits and video of 250 13-year-olds who participated in Schneider’s project demonstrate, there is a vast range of experiences that make up what it means to be 13 (or any age). Young filmmakers explore themes of time, memory, and transition in a variety of genres and cinematic effects.     This event is organized by Teen Art Council.  Teen programs are made possible through the generosity of Thunderbirds Charities, the Craig R. and Barbara M.
