We are pleased to announce that fifteen projects by 22 teen filmmakers will receive grants from Project VoiceScape, a collaboration between Adobe Youth Voices and POV, public television’s longest-running showcase for independent non-fiction films.
The fifteen winning projects will be awarded $2,000 each in completion funds, and the students will be mentored by award-winning documentary filmmakers. Additionally, three finalists will be selected to feature their completed films on the PBS Teachers, POV & Adobe Foundation websites.
Project VoiceScape is also providing select PBS member stations nationwide with funds to support student-created media training from KQED San Francisco’s Digital Media Center, and software donated by Adobe. These PBS stations will become part of the Adobe Youth Voices network, providing opportunities to showcase students’ work and collaborate with other Adobe Youth Voices participants around the globe.
