Do It Your Damn Self!!” (DIYDS!!) National Youth Video and Film Festival is a product of the Community Art Center’s Teen Media Program. The Teen Media Program, founded in 1970, has encouraged generations of teens to share their stories. With photography, video and filmmaking as a tool of expression, they have incited positive change in their lives and the world around them. Their experience with media technology and professional production skills have empowered them to move forward with self-assurance and dignity. DIYDS!! is the longest running youth-produced festival in the country, drawing over 800 youth and adults to public screenings every year. The Community Art Center’s Teen Media Program youth understood that, “if you want something done, you gotta do it your damn self.” This audacious motto became the mission of the festival where youth producers from all over the world are given a venue to be heard and appreciated by a wide audience.
