ENCORE SCREENING: Albany's award winning Youth FX teen filmmaking program will host the world premiere of our 2017 short films on Thursday March 30th, 7pm at the Spectrum 8 Movie Theatres. The screening will feature short documentary and narrative films, and will be followed by a Q & A with the youth filmmakers and program directors. Youth FX was founded in 2008 to provide young people in the City of Albany with a hands-on program designed to introduce them to the technical and creative aspects of digital film making by offering a thorough overview of the production process from script to screen. 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. Youth FX films have been screened and won awards at dozens of film festivals across the country including: Tribeca Film Festival San Francisco International Film Festival Los Angeles Film Festival Chicago International Film Festival DC Independent Film Festival Woodstock Film Festival Big Sky Documentary Festival Harlem International Film Festival Youth FX is sponsored & supported by: New York Council On The Arts (NYSCA), Charles Touhey Foundation, Times Union Hope Fund, Bender Family Foundation, Community Foundation of The Capital Region, Grand Street Community Arts, Albany High School, Albany Public Libraries, Spectrum 8 Theatres, The Free School, Wine & Dine For The Arts.
