“Do It Your Damn Self!!” (DIYDS!!) National Youth Film Festival is the longest running youth-produced festival in the country, drawing over 800 youth and adults to public screenings every year. Founded in 1996 by six Cambridge teens who felt misrepresented in the media and wanted to do something about it, the festival is a champion of social-justice and issue- focused youth filmmakers who want to see change and make it happen.
Join The Community Art Center and the Crew as we celebrate twenty years of raising up youth voices!!!
Event features a screening of the 2017 reel followed by a 90's throwback afterparty with live music and appetizers.
Attention parents & youth workers: this year's reel features films on the topics of sexuality and police brutality and may not be appropriate for younger viewers.
