Urban Mediamakers Film Festival
Helmed by the not-for-profit Urban Mediamakers Association, the four day Urban Mediamakers Film Festival showcases independent features, shorts, documentaries, cartoons, and music videos from a wide swath of burgeoning artists. In addition to having their creations screened and judged, novice filmmakers can learn the ins and outs of modern media by participating in in-depth discussions and presentations led by guest speakers who have found success in the industry. Past presentations and workshops have covered topics such as turning independent books into films, building a brand through social media, and developing a compelling story that can invoke thought and positive change. Beyond the premiers and presentations, the film festival also hosts an awards party and Videopalooza, a showcase for youth films.
