Description

Since 2005, the San Diego Asian Film Foundation has empowered local high school students to learn the art of documentary filmmaking through the Reel Voices Program. This intense, 12-week summer internship helps students become socially-conscious storytellers, learn Final Cut Pro editing, and experience all stages of production and post-production.

This year, Reel Voices presents the work of nine students whose works touch on issues ranging from cultural heritage, to work, to just having fun.

Free post-screening reception sponsored by Chipotle and Popeye’s.

Co-presented by: Japanese American Historical Society of San Diego (JAHSSD)
