Public Media Corps and the Black Programming Consortium initiated a youth engagement campaign to align with the release of a new documentary titled 180 School Days: A Year Inside an American High School. As part of the release of the film, NBPC sponsored 48 hour Flash Film Festivals with students

all over the country, asking them to develop, produce, edit and share short videos that address the drop out crisis. In Philadelphia, 25 students gathered at WHYY over March 9-10 to produce 4 short videos on this theme.

You can watch and vote for (“like”) your favorite AGFF official submissions March 18 – 25 on YouTube:
