RSVP for the 2016 Directing Change Awards
Love celebrity spotting and checking out new filmmakers? Here’s your chance to attend an awards show, see inspirational short films produced by youth across California, all while raising awareness about mental health during May!
Directing Change is part of Each Mind Matters — California’s Mental Health Movement — and encourages young people to submit 60 second films about suicide prevention and mental health. This festive event includes a pre-reception followed by a screening and awards ceremony of short films created by young filmmakers to change the conversation about suicide prevention and mental health at their schools and in their communities.
By attending the event you will learn about suicide prevention and mental health resources available to schools, providers and community-based organizations, the warning signs for suicide, how young people can be supportive of a friend in emotional distress or with mental health challenges, and how to access these films to support your own outreach efforts.
Join celebrities like Eric Close from “Nashville” and “Suits,” Naomi Grossman from “American Horror Story,” and Lakeith Stanfield from “Straight Outta Compton” as well as other writers, directors and filmmakers who will attend the event.
