Spark Media Project at the Tribeca Film Festival

I serve on the board of directors of Spark Media Project, which teaches media arts to underserved youth and gives them a forum to create film, television, radio, VR and more. Very excited to repost their recent success from the Tribeca Film Institute:

Spark Media Project’s “Santa Woman” was selected from hundreds of submissions from across the country as one of the top five finalists in the Tribeca Film Institute’s “The America I Am” Competition, which recognizes young filmmakers “that express unique perspectives on the American experience.”

The film was featured at the Tribeca Film Festival red carpet premiere at Ellis Island on April 19th, 2017.
