LOS ANGELES—I Too Am Media Festival
February 1, 2020 @ 3:00 am – 9:00 am
LOS ANGELES—On Saturday, February 1st, join USC Annenberg’s Critical Media Project for the I Too Am Media Festival. Featuring media created by and about Los Angeles high school youth, the festival addresses questions about identity in relation to place: “Who are you? What do you care about? What does ‘belonging’ mean to you? How do you see yourself as a Californian? As an Angeleno? As a member of your local neighborhood?”
Winning submissions will be screened during the festival, and attendees will have the opportunity to attend workshops devoted to storyboarding, ideation, zine-making, and music, as well as a presentation from the Museum of Tolerance on combatting hate.
Featured speakers include Brett Gray, star of Netflix’s On My Block, and Los Angeles youth activist Edna Chavez, who is involved with Community Coalition’s South Central Youth Empowerment Through Action (SCYEA) group and the March For Our Lives Movement. The festival is free and open to all Los Angeles High school students, their families, and members of the community. Register here.
