Since March 2020, reports of child maltreatment have dropped, confirming what many low-income parents have always suspected: the system of child welfare in the U.S. disproportionately targets parents of color. Our Child Puppet (2021), EVC’s youth-produced film, details the effects of the foster care system not only on those parents, but their children, resulting in the foster care-to-prison pipeline, and in unequal care for Black and Brown children.

Provoked by their own experiences being discriminated against on the basis of their race, a team of students from high schools across New York City set forth on an investigation into the roots of racial profiling in the police force. See the short Documentary "Cops Are(n't) Colorblind: Changing the NYPD from the Inside and Out" on September 25 @9:30PM and September 28 @3:10PM as part of New York City’s 10th Annual Winter Film Awards International Film Festival. https://winterfilmawards.com/2021/08/high-school-students-trace-the-roots-of-racial-profiling/ #educationalvideocenter Educational Video Center #Winterfilmawards #celebratediversity #filmfestival #nycfilmfest2021 #nycfilmfestivals #indiefilmmaking🎥 #indiefilmmaker #indiefilms #filmmaking #filmfestival
*If interested please apply by July 4th A leading brand in the image-making world is creating a documentary on rising BIPOC filmmakers in the New York metro area. We are currently seeking out five rising filmmakers in and around the New York City area who are passionate about character-driven documentary film work. (If they’re also passionate about the music industry, that’s a big plus too!) We are specifically searching for filmmakers who are open to receiving creative coaching in order to unlock their next level of filmmaking skills. These five filmmakers will get an opportunity to learn from leading voices in the industry and a chance to direct a documentary short of their own. These creatives should be willing to share their own stories, embrace the challenges of growth, and take risks to put their work out there. We will be filming the selected filmmakers as they receive coaching from leaders within the industry, develop their story ideas, and eventually bring them to life. The production will be for one week during the week of July 19, 2021, specific dates/timing to come. Apply here - https://musestorytelling.typeform.com/to/wpjHK4kG
