Based on the most current guidance from public officials to help deter the spread of COVID-19, we recognize that it is in our community’s best interest to cancel My Place | My Story workshop in April.

Our thoughts are with all those who have been affected by COVID-19, and we hope you and your loved ones are remaining safe and healthy at home.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us at [email protected] if you have any questions.

We are planning another workshop August  3-7 .

The CFI Education Team

MYPLACE | MY STORY is an opportunity for teens to create personal short films while learning digital storytelling and basic filmmaking skills. Supervised and supported by professional media makers, students write and record personal video narratives about their own lives and experiences and the things they are most inspired by or care about.

The finished films are presented on the big screen at the Smith Rafael Film Center one month after the workshop for an audience of family, friends and supporters, with a Q&A and reception to follow.

The program is FREE and includes all the necessary media tools and training, lunch for all five days of the workshop, and reimbursement of transportation costs to the workshop site, if needed.
