One of the highlights of the 25th Annual African American Film Marketplace and S.E. Manly Showcase is the 10th Annual Youth Diversity Film Festival for Middle and High School students, presented by Billie J. Green, Director of the BHERC Youth Diversity Film Festival. These aspiring young filmmakers study the craft at local arts organizations and High Schools in the Los Angeles Community.
BHERC is proud to spotlight shorts created by diverse youth. This screening and dialogue is an opportunity for emerging young directors to showcase their skills, talent and vision through film screenings, while giving the audience a chance to view and discuss the artistry, passion and sacrifice involved in the independent film making process.
