The culmination of a program of the Charles H. Wright Museum in partnership with VIP Mentoring and Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metro Detroit and funded by the Kresge Foundation, this film festival features short films written and produced by participating teens.  Over the course of the project, participants worked steadily on their very own films.  Come see the movie magic they’ve made!  FREE and open to the public.
