Youth Media Conference & Showcase

A day-long conference of screenings, interactive presentations, and activities for high school students, the Youth Media Conference inspires and equips students to explore, appreciate, analyze, create and share screen media. The conference will promote youth participation and representation in the media as a way to build community strength, encourage dialogue, and push for social and political change.

Are you an aspiring filmmaker? Already a filmmaker? Or simply interested in film? Register for R2R's Youth Media Conference and learn a few tips and tricks from some experienced filmmakers and peers. This is an opportunity to meet a mentor and ask questions of professionals working in the industry. Meet and collaborate with youth activists and filmmakers who are as passionate as you are. Spend the entire day with us and explore your film community.
