Media Arts Center San Diego Hosts The Age-Friendly Film Festival

Media Arts Center San Diego, in partnership with AARP, The San Diego Foundation and the County of San Diego Health and Human Services Agency, Aging & Independence Services, is celebrating the completion of the Emerging Filmmaker Fellowship by hosting the Age-Friendly Film Festival.

This four-month fellowship provided participants with a cash stipend, filmmaker training, and mentorship to produce short films highlighting local efforts to build age-friendly communities where people of all ages can be healthy and thrive. “The films produced by the Fellows give us a glimpse as to what age-friendly communities can look like; underscoring the radical potential for structural change and a future rooted in care and compassion for people of all ages.” – Cameron Quevedo, Media Arts Center San Diego Director of Education.

The short documentaries will be screened at the Age-Friendly Film Festival.

About The Age-Friendly Film Festival

The Age-Friendly Film Festival is a celebration of youth-produced videos about services available to San Diego’s aging communities. Throughout a 4-month period, participating filmmakers have produced videos highlighting indispensable services and initiatives that improve the quality of life for older adults.

See you there, San Diego!
