TWN Production Workshop Alumni

TWN Production Workshop Alumni Established in December 1967 as Newsreel, an activist filmmaker collective, this NY group grew to become a network with chapters across the US.

Its different chapters produced and distributed short 16mm films covering the anti-war and women's movements, Civil and human rights movements, getting unique access to such groups as the Black Panther Party and the Young Lords Party. Newsreel’s activism attracted many artists who became well known filmmakers - Norman Fruchter, Susan Robeson, Robert Kramer, Christine Choy, Tami Gold, Allan Siegel and Deborah Shaffer, among others.

Mission: To unite and maintain an open conversation between TWN Production Workshop Alumni. This page will give former students the ability to chat amongst each other, raise questions regarding filmmaking and promote their current projects. TWN has trained over 400 film and video artists in the past 30 years through its annual TWN Film & Video Production Workshop. In addition, over the past five years, the organization has also presented each spring and fall: the Final Cut Pro/Media Literacy workshop series', the Wednesday Night Workshop Series, and in 2005, began presenting Youth Alternative Media Workshops as well. In 2009, with the extra support of the Asian Women Giving Circle, TWN presented the AGEM (Asian Girls Empowerment through Media) Summer Workshop, a program of media literacy and production where 11 Asian young women produced 4 videos. TWN regularly collaborates on workshops, conferences, seminars and special projects such as The Writers & Makers Film Series, the New Visions Series, the Human Rights, Reunification and Korean Diaspora Film Festival with NYU A/P/A studies and local community groups.
