BRIC’s Youth Media Fellowship program focuses on developing and producing Concrete Stories: BRIC Youth Media Festival. The 11th annual festival showcases short films of various genres created by NYC youth filmmakers under 21 years old. Over the course of the fellowship, Youth Media Fellows meet once a week in a group of 8-10 of their peers with the guidance of BRIC staff. The fellows determine the theme of the festival, manage the call for entries, create marketing materials, select the festival films, promote, and host the festival screening. The festival takes place in May 2024 at BRIC House and is free to the public.
BRIC’s Youth Curators Fellowship program will focus on developing and producing the 4th Annual For-Teens-By-Teens, BRIC’s Youth Contemporary Art Exhibition.
