Be the first to see EVC’s two newest youth produced films this Thursday at Lincoln Center!

Finding Hope in a Lost Cause: A Climate Change Documentary looks at the climate crisis from the perspective of marginalized communities to show how youth are leading activist movements in a time of planetary environmental crisis.

Cops Are(n't) Color Blind: Changing the NYPD From the Inside and Out explores racial profiling inside and through the NYPD. Youth producers draw from their personal experiences and interviews with current officers, community activists, and elected officials to explore solutions to this controversial topic.

EVC’s workshops change the lives of students like Raelene. After being out of school for 2 and a half years she enrolled in our Youth Documentary Workshop. EVC sparked a craving for learning in Raelene that lead her to college, where she is working on her second degree, while mentoring the next generation of students as a teaching assistant! It has been a pleasure to watch her grow this decade and support her along her path.

We’re excited to announce that she will share her story as the keynote speaker at our Winter Cocktail & Youth Documentary Premiere! Here's a sneak peak video above to learn about why she loves EVC, and get your tickets to this inspiring event today.
