Campecine Film Festival

Join youth organizers and filmmakers at Campecine Film Festival from 1-4 p.m. 27 September at the Indianapolis Museum of Art, 4000 Michigan Road, Indianapolis.

More than a film festival, Campecine was founded in 2007 by youth from Thermal, Calif., and Indianapolis, who are exploring collective action, film, inquiry, research and media education.

With the theme "From Invisible to Invincible / De Invinzivlez a Invenzivlez," Campecine 2008 will present student "testimonios," film and music. Program participants will view "Issue-Mations" (animations) and "Varriomentaries" (documentaries) and engage in a community dialogue on current issues including race relations, local and national immigration policy reforms, teen pregnancy, ICE Raids, and education.

In addition to student-produced cultural products, Campecine 2008 will feature live music from composer and pianist Dr. Gabriela Lena Frank.

Campecine 2008 is a free, Spanish-English bilingual event. Copies of student work will be made available and donations will be accepted to benefit the Latino Youth Collective.
