Dream Team Los Angeles formally responds to the President’s weak mention for immigration reform and the Republican Party’s lack of substance on immigration in their response.
This short 3 minute film recreates a deportation scene. It was edited and co-directed by one of our members. The creators wanted to show how our lives are affected daily by these policies and that no undocumented immigrant is perfect. They seek to humanize a different type of immigrant, to show that we all deserve dignity and respect.
We are ecstatic to announce The Cortos Y Fuertes / Short & Strong student film competition, sponsored by the Los Angeles County Federation of Labor and UNITE HERE. Short and Strong is a film competition meant to create a space for youth to tell their immigrant stories.
This student film competition is meant for students of all ages. We want youth to be creative and resourceful, using whatever means accessible to create their stories (even cell phones).
We will have three age categories: 13 and below, 14 to 17, and 18 and over (so long as the individual is a student in high school, a GED program, community college, undergraduate graduate degree program or graduate degree program). There will be a 1st ($1,000) and 2nd ($500) place prize for each category, as well as a Most Viewed ($1,000) and Best Overall prize ($2,000).
This is not only a chance for participants to win cash prizes, but it is excellent opportunities to have their voices reach a distinguished panel of judges. These judges include Rosario Dawson, Dolores Huerta, Antonio Villaraigosa, Esai Morales, Danny Trejo and many more…
Submissions are done online at the short and strong web site and are DUE September 20, 2013.
