2011-2012 Media That Matters Short Film Festival
Ever since the first year of MOBS, we've shown this annual festival of socially conscious short films, and so once again, we're bringing the all-new 2011-2012 edition of the Media That Matters Short Film Festival to Sacramento! The fest is compiled by Arts Engine in New York, which incidentally been incredibly supportive of MOBS - see the Arts Engine quote on our website.
The shorts are all made by student and independent filmmakers, and subjects covered in this year's fest include: the continuing effects of the United States' use of Agent Orange in Vietnam; challenges facing LGBT youth in Chicago; living with Asperger's Syndrome; a portrait of Sikh-American activist Sonny Singh as he organizes New York City Sikh youth to combat harassment in their schools; seasonal hunger in coffee growing communities; and much, much more.
