i'm ready for a festival

filmfest-diversity-HiRes
no, i'm not talking about thanksgiving (but i am so ready for that). david has been working really hard, along with a whole group of other people, on putting together the Youth Film Fest KC! you can read more about it at filmsforyouth.org. i'm so proud of what they accomplish with at risk kids. we all know that when money is tight, programs get cut and the first ones to go are those that deal with the arts. the youth participating in this film festival not only had the opportunity to learn how to make a short film, but focused their films on such topics as equality and human rights by taking a cross cultural look at a subject they were not familiar with. a tall order for sure, but they jumped too it. come see for yourself.
