2023 Screening and Awards Ceremony

On December 10, 2023, we will recognize the hard work and achievements of our students and volunteers at our annual Screening & Awards Ceremony! This event is attended by our students, their families, and special industry guests. Last year, speakers included Loren Bouchard (Creator, “Bob’s Burgers”), and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (Advocate and member of the NBA Hall of Fame).

This year, 48 students created 9 short films that will premiere at the event, taking place Sunday, December 10th, 4:30-7:30 pm PT at the historic El Rey Theater in Los Angeles. Our partners and supporters in the industry play an important role in making this a once-in-a-lifetime experience for our students.
