BAVC Student Video Screening at San Francisco Library 8-22

Hello filmmakers, educators, Bay Area non-profits, and supporters of youth media production and education!

I'm writing to invite you to The Factory's ninth annual year-end screening - the Bay Area Video Coalition's advanced video production program will be screening fifteen completed works on Wednesday, August 22 from 4:30-7:00pm at the San Francisco Public Library's lovely Koret Auditorium. 

This year the young filmmakers in The Factory have produced some truly exceptional work: music videos made with youth from BUMP Records, documentaries about local events like Occupy Oakland, videos made in partnership with local organizations like SFPL, KQED, the DeYoung Museum and City College of SF, and a couple of hilarious/heartbreaking/bizarre narrative shorts. 

Please come out and support these amazing young artists - for many of them, this is their final screening before they head off to college (half of this year's graduating class is off to NYU's Tisch School of the Arts and one student received a full ride to University of Southern California!) 

Doors open at 4:30, the screening starts at 5:00, with a Q&A to follow. 
The event is free and open to the public. Snacks will be provided. 

Please forward this along to filmmakers, youth, educator or parents that may be interested in attending or may want to learn more about BAVC's NextGen programs - we are starting our recruiting push for 2012-2013 this week (
