Youth Driven Cinema

Youth Driven Cinema

The Environmental Studies Center and Inwater Research Group (IRG) proudly present the 6th annual Youth Driven Cinema, a K-12 Environmental Film Festival, held at The Lyric Theatre May 1st at 6:30pm (doors open at 6:00pm). Admission is free!

The mission of Youth Driven Cinema is to engage the youth of Martin County by fostering community involvement and environmental awareness through the arts and sciences. Students not only enter their films, but also help plan the film festival. The general public is encouraged to attend this free event thanks to a generous anonymous donor.  Donations will be accepted to support The Environmental Studies Center programs available to all K-12 Martin County students.

Students are welcome to enter a variety of film styles ranging from animation to short documentaries. This year’s theme is “Choose to Refuse: Saying NO to Single-use Items.”  The top five short films in four categories will be presented at the film festival. Prizes will be awarded to the top three films in each category.  For more information and submission, please visit www.inwater.org/YDC.

Entries must be received by March 23rd.
