Second Annual GiveMe5 Teen Film Festival

Contact: Sherilyn Brown
RISCA Education Program

The Rhode Island Film and Television Office, in conjunction with the Rhode Island State Council on the Arts Education Program, and the Rhode Island Arts Learning Network, announces its second annual GiveMe5 Teen Film Festival, to be held Saturday, May 15th at Bryant University, Janikies Auditorium, from 12:30-4:30 PM.

Teen filmmakers from school and community media education programs will show their work, and a panel of professionals will give feedback after each piece. Participating programs this year include: Cranston West High School, East Bay Met School (Newport), Bishop Hendricken High School (Warwick) , Providence Academy for International Studies, LaSalle Academy (Providence), Beacon Charter High School (Woonsocket), Hope High School (Providence), and Westerly High School Steven Feinberg, Executive Director of RI Film & TV Office, will be the master of ceremonies for the event.

Each participating school or community media program has entered up to three pieces in the event. The purpose of GiveMe5 is to network media education programs statewide, and build the community of young filmmakers in Rhode Island. Rather than a competition, the focus of the showcase is on media education.

“Young people today are inundated with images about them but not by them” says Sherilyn Brown, Education Director of the Rhode Island State Council on the Arts. “Media education is an important part of putting young filmmakers at the center, letting them tell us in images and sound what they think and feel about the world around them.”

For more info on GiveMe5, call 222-6994, Monday-Friday, 8:30-4:30.
