CINEMA CHICAS
March 22 from 10am-2pm
EPCC Valle Verde Campus
Local girls ages 11-17 are invited to discover how they can change the world through multimedia arts & technology. Girls are invited to get an insider sneak peek with KCOS and Latinitas to make their own video production. Girls will get ready for an audio-visual adventure as they go behind the scenes to see what it takes to produce their own short film. Participants will learn skills such as writing a script, acting, filming and video editing to implement their campaign and much more. They will create their own skit and make their video debut. Girls will engage in video making, podcasting and other activities to get their media message out to the world. Aside from these fun activities, professional women in various media industries will be presenting a career panel to empower these young girls. Join us for a day of creating media and empowering the local girls. Girls should bring $5 for lunch. For more information, call 915.219.8554, email latinitaselpaso@yahoo.com or visit http://laslatinitas.com/programs/registration

To celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Gettysburg Address, documentarian Ken Burns, along with numerous partners, has launched a national effort to encourage everyone in America to video record themselves reading or reciting the speech. The collection of recordings housed on this site will continue to grow as more and more people are inspired by the power of history and take the challenge to LEARN THE ADDRESS.

KCOS has received a grant to conduct ten local workshops related to this project in partnership with Latinitas. Who will be hosting a special video editing workshop for girls ages 9 – 13 on March 22nd, 2014.

There will also be a free screening event of The Address documentary by Ken Burns in April before it airs nationally. For more information about the film visit: http://www.pbs.org/kenburns/the-address/home/

Our goal is to submit over 200 videos from El Pasoans reciting the Gettysburg Address. We encourage you to also be part of this project by uploading your own video too. Use the following widget for your submission and help us reach our goal!

Funding was also provided by Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB), as part of "American Graduate: Let's Make It Happen," a public media initiative to help communities solve the national high school dropout crisis and keep more students on a successful path to college and career.
