Movie Night: Youth Documentary Academy
The Youth Documentary Academy (YDA) was founded in 2014 to help teens transpose their lived experiences into high impact, first person point-of- view filmmaking. By choosing Colorado Springs, YDA leveled the playing field among elite film arts academies that exist primarily on the coasts and in big cities. YDA filmmakers now travel regularly to high schools, universities and film festivals to engage their work and open the doors to courageous conversations.
YDA will share four award-winning films from its PBS series ‘Our Time.’ A Q&A with filmmakers and YDA founder Tom Shepard will follow the screening.
