Adobe Youth Voices

Running Time: N/A

Adobe Youth Voices has partnered with the Cinequest film festival for the 5th year in a row to premiere films created by Bay Area young people; social commentaries about the world they live in. Adobe Youth Voices and Cinequest provide these students with an opportunity to learn the essentials of film making in a mini-camp, a few weeks before they debut their films at the festival. Mini-camps are being held on Feb. 19, Feb. 26 and March 5 at Adobe’s downtown San Jose offices where students will work on their film projects with media mentors. The final screening of the youth work will be held on Saturday, March 12, from 11 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. at the Camera 12 theater in downtown San Jose. The screening will be open to Cinequest pass holders and Adobe Youth Voices participants.

With constant reminders about the challenges at-risk youth face and the increasing drop-out rate plaguing our high schools, it’s refreshing to hear what local high school students have to say about the change they hope to bring to their communities.

Adobe Youth Voices Overview

Adobe Youth Voices is a global philanthropy program that empowers youth from at-risk communities to create films, documentaries and other forms of digital media so that they can comment on their world, share their ideas and take action on issues that are important to them. By harnessing the energy and insight of youth 13 – 19 years old, Adobe Youth Voices aims to inspire a dialogue for change in their communities. In the Bay Area alone, Adobe Youth Voices has 21 locations and reaches more than 500 youths. Worldwide, the Adobe Youth Voices global network includes more than 600 sites, grantees and organizations in 45 countries, engaging over 20,000 youth and 2,000 educators in schools and out-of-school programs.
