APA Film P.O.V. Program
In 2007, APA Film started the P.O.V. (Point of View) program, a hands-on summer workshop designed to empower and give voice to local Asian Pacific American youth by exposing them to the art of filmmaking. The program aims to encourage the artistic development of young people between the ages of 16 to 19 by giving them experience learning visual storytelling techniques. We hope that this program helps foster the emerging artistic voices in our community especially those who have a strong interest in film as a possible career.
Over the course of several weeks during the summer, students accepted into the program will attend a number of workshops where they will receive valuable insight into the creative and technical strategies essential for conceptualizing, developing, and producing films. Classes will involve a wide range of topics that will give students the opportunity to expand their knowledge and put it to immediate use. Participants will also get the chance to produce a short film that may be shown during the annual DC APA Film Festival. Classes will be held in a metro-accessible location in the Washington, DC metropolitan area and will be taught by APA Film staff members as well as local media professionals.
