Concrete Stories aims to promote conversations around the power and potential of young people by showcasing authentic, entertaining, and diverse works by New York youth media makers under the age of 21. The festival features the screening of a collection of short docs, fiction films, music videos, and animations. Awards are given for directing, storytelling, cinematography, acting, editing, and viewer’s choice.
The festival is run by the Youth Media fellows and gives a platform to young people to express themselves as well as to demonstrate their skills. It is important to bring people together in a time when we are physically apart in order to create community. Our goal is to instill confidence and validate the story and experiences of the filmmakers.
The 2023 -2024 BRIC Youth Media Fellows are curating the 11th Annual Concrete Stories: BRIC Youth Media Festival which will be held May 2024.
