The folks over at Scribe, an organization dedicated to giving fledgling media artists access to the tools and educational opportunities they need, are taking applications for their “Documentary History Project for Youth”. The program allows for Philadelphia middle and high school students (grades 8 to 12) to work with professional directors and producers towards creating short-form documentaries that give audiences a taste of Philadelphia’s unique cultural history.
This year’s topic is “Philly Poets”. Whether that means writers, rappers or spoken word poets is up to you, but act fast: the deadline for applications is March 21st, 2014, at 5PM.
Scribe is already directly responsible for some great short films about our city’s rich cultural heritage. Anyone interested in filmmaking, video editing, or enriching themselves through the exploration of the city that surrounds us is welcome, and encouraged, to apply.
