MediaRights.org has a traveling Media That Matters Film Festival. The Media
That Matters Online Film Festival celebrates short films and videos which
inspire people to speak out and take action for social change. The films
are not animated, but many of them do address youth issues. The 12 short
films focus on a number of issues including racism at a small town high
school, artistic censorship, workplace health hazards and teen suicide. The
traveling festival is free to organizations in New York state and available
for a fee for other states. The traveling festival includes a take action
kit, a videocassette and press and evaluation forms. You can view the
online festival at http://www.mediarights.org/festival/presentation For
more information, please contact Jenny Baum at 646-230-6288.
P.S. Julia Pimsleur, our Executive Director is also a New Day Films member
and sends her best to you.
