"The understanding of a culture comes from hearing the language, tasting the food, seeing personal interactions, experiencing the traditions, and so much more when it is in context."

Celebrating the Power of Youth Voices in Cinema
FRESNO–Mark your calendars for this upcoming showcase with young mediamakers supported by our CDP NextGen grant program! Community Media Access Collaborative (CMAC) has announced the 4th annual screening of Youth Voices documentaries, with this year’s cohort composed of local junior high and high school students. Each were guided through a comprehensive 10-week training program that included topics such as media literacy, idea generation, script writing, field production, audio production, editing, and post-production, and subsequently produced their own documentary films focusing on issues relevant to the Central Valley with the guidance of CMAC staff. Topics include immigration, bullying, teens and vaping, redlining, and more.
