We are excited to be just a few days away from NeXt Doc, our first ever national program for youth filmmakers. A few years ago programming directors from Youth FX and the Carey Institute for Global Good got together and asked how they could work together to bring youth from diverse communities together to share stories, skills and gain inspiration from each other. The idea incubated for nearly four years and this past fall we met with staff and directors from the Carey Institute and they agreed to underwrite the concept of bringing 15 youth documentary filmmakers together under the direction of Youth FX educators and NeXt Doc was launched!
NeXt Doc is a collaboration between Youth FX and the Carey Institute for Global Good that will bring together talented youth documentary filmmakers from across the country with award-winning documentarians to learn, share, build connections and take their skills and ideas to the next level! We are proud and excited to announce the 13 youth filmmakers from across the country who have been selected to participate in this four day workshop May 12th-15th which will also feature public screenings of new films by presenting filmmakers Sam Pollard and Iva Radivojevic.
