Making Movies that Matter

Valley Relics Museum is proud to announce that we will be partners in the 1st annual Making Movies that Matter, a youth short film festival which connects mentors and students from Elementary to College within the San Fernando Valley. We are honored to be collaborating with Mitchell Englander, the Community Arts Partnership (Cal-Arts), the Department of Cultural Affairs, the Institute Community Health Wellbeing, the Los Angeles Unified School District, and Speck Products to bring this great opportunity to the youth of the Valley.

We hope that participating students, with the guidance of mentors, will be inspired to choose subject matter that is personal, heartfelt and meaningful to them, which will ultimately manifest itself in quality short films we will all be proud of.

While there are a number of sponsored schools participating, the festival is open to all youth in Council District 12 and the San Fernando Valley and there are no submission fees. The submission deadline is Monday, May 9, 2016. For more information about the festival, the entry rules, and participating schools/artists, please visit: Making Movies that Matter.

We are looking forward to viewing your wonderful and thought-provoking submissions!
