AWOL Presents Annual Youth Film Festival

SAVANNAH, GA -

A local youth arts organization is giving kids a shot at the silver screen this summer. All Walks of Life, Inc. (AWOL) is set to host its annual My Block Youth Film Festival. The event, which will showcase student work, also features screenings of issue based short films and PSA's created by (them) local young people.

AWOL is the first and only arts and technology program for youth at-risk living in Chatham County. Its mission is to promote and provide self-awareness through the use of poetry, hip-hop and life.

The film and video production class, titled "My Block", is a spring-summer-long program that introduces students to various aspects of film production and photography.

AWOL recently received a $1,500 grant from the Kinder Morgan Foundation which supports North American nonprofit youth programs focused on education, the arts, and the environment. Grants range from $1000-$5000.

The festival is scheduled for Sunday, July 21, 7:00pm at the Sentient Bean Coffee shop located at 13 East Park Ave.
