A Question[edit]

Seeing all these filmmakers is interesting and raises general awareness about the state of filmmaking in today's Jackson Heights. But it would be wonderful if this page would enable growth of that recent addition to our neighborhood. Thoughts may be shared here.

And a suggestion[edit]

The QWFF's Young Filmmakers program at P.S. 69 has been teaching the basics of filmmaking to 5th graders for 7 or 8 years. That's 30 students x 7 years = 210 former Young filmmakers sprinkled through junior high, high school, college, and wherever. How many of them are still involved with film? How many would like to get involved now?

Friday Night @ The Movies[edit]

How about gathering the Young Filmmakers together with local adult filmmakers for a night of show and tell at P.S. 69?

Advantages: Allow Young Filmmakers to reconnect with long lost classmates; provide an opportunity for the adults to network with their contemporaries; network through generations. Thomas Lowenhaupt (talk) 15:14, 2 October 2017 (UTC)
