We promote filmmaking as a vehicle for meeting the educational, emotional, social and developmental needs of students. Moreover, the #FFFM stakes a claim to the belief that youth

in Special Education deserve access to high quality,

digital arts programming. 

Engaging children in filmmaking teaches them that they can and in fact SHOULD create culture, information and entertainment so their perspectives and talents can be heard, celebrated and enjoyed in connection with the community at large.

Filmmaking need not be reserved for the privileged few. In today’s world, being digital media-culture savvy is a must. Training students in the art of digital communication is tantamount to giving them a civic voice. May their voices be heard!
