For documentary filmmakers, strategists, funders, broadcasters, buyers – and of course, fans – November means the International Documentary FilmFestival Amsterdam (IDFA), the premier international festival celebrating the best of the form from around the world. CMSI leaders hit the ground running in Amsterdam this year, playing key roles as speakers and participants.
The Center for Media and Social Impact is proud to announce the Community Voice Project has now joined CMSI as a featured program.
The Community Voice Project (CVP)isa community storytelling initiative led by American University Filmmaker-in-Residence Nina Shapiro-Perl that connects members of American University’s student population with communities in the Washington Metropolitan area to produce short documentary films and digital stories. The CVP partners with a local community organization to focus on a topic and tell the stories most important to that community.
