Special Guests:

Mobile Film Classroom is a 501(c)3 public charity with a production studio-on-wheels that travels throughout Los Angeles County to bring digital media instruction to at-risk and underserved youth.  We provide access to technology that often cannot be found at school or at home. Our programs use digital media to engage students and provide them with the tools to become authors of their own stories.
