The team at EVC extends a warm thanks for making our Annual Benefit Premiere Screening such an overwhelming success! We are extremely proud of our students for producing two powerful, heartfelt films that highlighted teens’ experiences navigating family separation and divorce and the mental health impact of youth gang involvement.

Congratulations again to this year’s honorees, Marc Levin, Amy Goodman, and Alba Eduardo,  for their outstanding work in film,  journalism, their dedication to EVC, and for inspiring the next generation of filmmakers and journalists. We would also like to thank NYC Council Speaker, Melissa Mark-Viverito, Honorary Chair of the event, and Bill Moyers for his warm welcome remarks.

Huge thanks to the 2017 Benefit Committee and major donors, Judy Doctoroff, Rosa Pietanza, Jack Wieland, Sherri Wolf, and Torrance York. This night was also made possible with generous support from our friends at the Film Society of Lincoln Center.

We are thrilled that we raised over $36,000! Your support enables us to sustain our award-winning youth media programming, impact the lives of our students through transformative storytelling and learning, and showcase youth-produced documentary films in our communities. Thank you for being there with us and believing in the work we do!
