The Center for Investigative Reporting and the Center for Art and Public Life at the California College of the Arts are excited to invite you to a night of animated storytelling at The New Parkway Theater in Oakland.
In partnership with CIR, the "ENGAGE: Animated Investigations" class at CCA challenges students from a variety of disciplines to work in the realm of investigative journalism and explore creative approaches to visual, fact-based storytelling.
At this special screening, we'll showcase original animations from students in the class, sourced from their own research and reporting. We'll also feature a stellar line-up of local and international documentary shorts that you won't want to miss.
Tickets are free, but you must RSVP to reserve your seats, which will be filled on a first come, first serve basis. Doors open at 6 p.m. Program starts at 6:30 p.m. Full program below. See you there!
