Reel Voices

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)
