Hands-on learning for local students and film enthusiasts, post-film talk-backs, and a focus on youth from all communities. The Mosaic Film Experience will generate long-lasting community dialogue built on shared art, shared experiences, and new skills. Our purpose is to spark conversations and different ways of thinking about our various tribes.
“This is an event which tells the stories that are seldom told, by a tribe that rarely gets a chance to tell them: our young people. They are authentic, brilliant, and they are ours. Mosaic Film Experience celebrates them.”
Founder, The Mosaic Film Experience
