#StoriesTakingAction: A Premiere to Remember

#StoriesTakingAction: A Premiere to Remember

On June 2nd, EVC’s Youth Doc Workshop students premiered two powerful new documentaries at #StoriesTakingAction. They also joined Abigail E. Disney—documentary filmmaker and recipient of EVC’s Storyteller in Action Award—in conversation, talking about the future of documentary filmmaking and the importance of young people’s voices in media. Here are some highlights from the conversation!

We also honored EVC alum Maude Carroll with the Alumni Action Award, and heard from our students and community members about how to take action to support teen mental health and shut down the foster care-to-prison pipeline! If you missed the two documentaries, Behind My Happy Face and Our Child Puppet, you can stream them on Vimeo. Thanks to all who came out, and to all who donated to support EVC’s young people!
