Synopsis

RAW is a youth arts organization located in Lynn, Massachusetts offering a variety of free programming from painting to filmmaking for kids ages 7-19. RAW uses art to ask kids ‘what is really going on” in their lives, giving them the tools to create in unexpected ways, and envision new possibilities for their future. This is the festival’s second-year showcasing student work and it has been an amazing experience, not only for these young filmmakers but also for the local community as well. The kids are offered the chance to screen their films for a live audience and afterwards hold a Q&A where they can answer questions, further explain their film’s narrative, and gain the experience of what it is like to be a professional filmmaker.
