ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KSDK) - Local high school filmmakers will have their moment in the spotlight July 14 at the Tivoli Theater.
This past school year, 11 students from Roosevelt & Clyde C Miller Career Academy created nine documentaries dealing with issues facing the City of St. Louis as part of the Pentimento - St. Louis Story Mapping Project.
As part of the program, students developed, shot, and edited films regarding issues such as homelessness and Stray Rescue St. Louis. Students were paid for their work.
The short documentaries will play at the Tivoli Theater July 14 at 12:30 p.m. as part of the St. Louis Filmmakers Showcase.
The program was ran by the Midwest Center for Media Literacy in partnership with Speak Up Productions and Studio STL and funded by the Missouri Arts Council, Regional Arts Commission, and the Missouri Humanities Council.
