Here’s What Our Alums Are Saying About EVC

“It was an experience that I will never forget.” — Angelica Perez, EVC Graduate

EVC started with a simple idea — to transform the lives of young people by putting video cameras into their hands to explore and report on the issues that matter most to them and their communities.

As busy as they are, our graduates carry EVC’s community-minded values

Whether it is providing internships, volunteering at EVC screenings, or securing donations on behalf of the organization, our alumni are committed to giving back to the community and making it possible for our students to have the same kind of life changing experience that they had at EVC.

We are proud to announce that at our Annual Benefit and Premiere Screening at the Film Society of Lincoln Center on June 3rd, we will be giving Alex Soto,Technical Director at Bloomberg News, the EVC Alumni Leader’s Award for his dedicated support and mentorship of EVC students.
