Ohio Shorts: Youth Division
Lots of teens are making movies at home and at school and showing their projects on blogs and YouTube. Here’s a chance to see what some of these young media artists have been up to—in a theatrical setting.
Music videographer Ryan Schlagbaum, teen photographer and writer Tamiko Hess, and Jennifer Lange, the Wexner Center’s associate curator of media arts, selected the works for the Youth Division program (featuring artists age 18 and under). They have also chosen a number of prize winning works, which will be announced at the screening. Those attending will have a chance to cheer on their own favorites in the popular “Audience Choice” competition.
We’ll also be announcing the finalists for a public service announcement commission from Cardinal Health Foundation. Finalists will receive a $1,000 stipend from Cardinal Health (and ongoing technical support from the Wexner Center) for participating in a preliminary strategy session and creating a 30-second spot. Once those spots are completed, one of the artists will be selected for an additional $2500 prize and may have their piece broadcast nationally. Read more about the PSA project, which is now in its second year, in the Member News and Events section.
Stick around after the Youth Division screening for a reception honoring the artists starting at about 5:30 PM and for the href="http://www.wexarts.org/fv/index.php?eventid=4743">evening screening (works by artists 19+) at 7 PM.
The Youth Division of Ohio Shorts is presented with generous support from Cardinal Health.
