The Factory wraps up summer programming!

Posted on: Tuesday, August 23 2011

Last Friday marked the official end to The Factory's 2010-2011 school year programming here at BAVC. 

Each year The Factory, BAVC's advanced filmmaking program for motivated teens, provides students with the opportunity to develop their storytelling skills by creating their own original films.  In the summer, The Factory partners with other Bay Area non-profits and Factory students work in small teams to create to produce films that the partner organizations can feature on their websites and use in fundraising capaigns and recruiting pitches.

The 2010-2011 school year marks the eighth and most-productive year in the program’s existence. The fifteen young filmmakers in the program produced twenty pieces including narrative shorts, documentaries, music videos, and Public Service Announcements.

This year’s Community Filmmaking Partnerships included City Slicker Farms, the Huey P. Newton Foundation, Creative Growth, Inspire USA, and the San Francisco YMCA Truancy Assessment and Referral Center.

Additionally, The Factory partnered with Mozilla to produce 'Web-Native' versions of each of the four pieces that came out of the summer partnerships.  These pieces each take the storytelling to another level by taking advantage of the internet's potential for engagement and community interactivity.

This Saturday (for free), you can catch all of the films and have the opportunity to engage with the web-native films at The Factory Year-End Screening.
