About the Event:
The free film making class is being offered as preparation for the national Cell Phone Cinema Contest: Imaging Women…the Immigrant Voice. Cell phones have become powerful tools for storytellers and Women in Media-Newark is looking to help youth follow Nokia's lead and use cell phones to create movies that tell the passionate stories of women from the immigrant perspective perspective.
This offering is a collaboration between Women In Media – Newark, Rutgers University’s Center for African Studies, and Rutgers University’s Program for Community - University Partnerships, with sponsorship from Rutgers Center for Global Advancement and International Affairs.
Women In Media – Newark is an organization that advocates for and educates the public about issues affecting the lives of women using film, video and new media as our platform. Merging culture and academia, we rally behind our sisters who courageously struggle to assume leadership roles in the film industrywith their conscious effort to present a balanced image of women, dispelling the stereotypes, and changing public perception of their sisters worldwide.
