August 15 - August 18

The NATIVE YOUTH MULTIMEDIA WORKSHOP goes to the Mohegan Tribe August 15th – 18th, 2018! Our program will be working with Mohegan Native youth and they will be taught how to produce digital video projects about their tribal history, language, and culture.  They will be recording and producing film about the tribe’s 2018 Mohegan Wigwam Festival to be held August 18 & 19. 

The NATIVE YOUTH MULTIMEDIA WORKSHOP is a filmmaking program designed to teach acting, writing, directing, camera operation, and video editing. It is intended to teach youth how to produce digital videos that have a logical story line and a professional appearance. The workshop ends with a community screening on the final day at the Mohegan Tribe. 

Thank you Mohegan Tribe for hosting our program. We are honored to be working with your youth!


About the Program:

The NATIVE YOUTH FILM WORKSHOP is a week long youth filmmaking program designed to teach acting, writing, directing, camera operation, and video editing. It is intended to teach youth how to produce digital videos that have a logical story line and a professional appearance. The workshop ends with a community screening on the final day at a local venue.

Every year since 2009, the NATIVE YOUTH MULTI-MEDIA WORKSHOP has travelled to reservations throughout North America and Indigenous communities throughout the world to teach youth multimedia skills.

The films produced in the workshop will also be shown in November 2018 at the 12th Annual LA SKINS FEST. This is a prestigious film festival in Los Angeles sponsored by NBCUniversal, ABC/DISNEY, CBS and FOX Entertainment Group. These screenings encourage the participating youth to pursue their new found talents. In November, as part of the film festival, there will also be a scheduled tour of a television network or movie studio. This tour is designed to offer career opportunities to
Native youth in the filed of multimedia.
