Salem, Mass. – Young filmmakers from the award-winning Real to Reel Digital Film School at RAW Art Works in Lynn, Mass., have an opportunity to showcase their latest work at PEM. Audiences will view documentaries and fanciful shorts that evoke emotion while revealing the future through the eyes of the youth.

Students in the Real to Reel program use film as an outlet to expose their identities, challenge stereotypes and showcase their vision and talent. The program also teaches students how to creatively approach the art of visual storytelling. The students take full responsibility for preparing, shooting and finishing a film, a process that gives the youth a fuller understanding of the role media plays in their lives.

Founded in 1988, RAW is a nonprofit youth arts organization that provides modern ways for kids to engage in art and allow it to transform their lives. Through modern methods, RAW gives children and teens tools for success in art and beyond.
