Winner of the WOMEN'S JUSTICE AWARD
Summer Arts Institute is a tuition-free intensive arts program that allows NYC Department of Education public school students entering grades 8-12 the opportunity to major in dance, theater, vocal performance, instrumental performance, visual art, film or photography. The Frank Sinatra School of the Arts School in Astoria, Queens serves as the home for the Summer Arts Institute, which is administered by the NYC Department of Education’s Office of the Arts and Special Projects. The Tribeca Film Institute serves as the cultural partner for the filmmaking component of the Summer Arts Institute.
Young filmmakers collaborate with instructors and receive one-on-one attention as they work towards completing their final group and personal projects. Students create, challenge and explore the creative and technical aspects of filmmaking in a six-week program from July through August. BURNING BARRIERS was created during the 2010 program by four young filmmakers; Jasmine Fox, Matteo Mobilio, Laura Weisbord and Britney Williams.
