The Perfect Stranger Kickstarter Campaign

Cinema Du Cannes Project and African American Youth Harvest Foundation have joined forces this year to give Austin's LBJ high school students a chance to make a short film. The final product has been accepted to the Cannes Film Festival Court Métrage - Short Film Corner. The students were involved in all aspects of the film production from writing the script to final editing and now have the opportunity to travel to the festival to see the final phase of the project and witness first-hand their place in the world film community. However, these exceptional aspiring young film makers are desperately in need of funding to help make their dream a reality!

Cinema Du Cannes Project is producing a documentary this summer:

“40 Years – On the Air”.

It will focus on David Anderson, a radio broadcasting legend that has been part of Austin’s radio community and culture for 40 years. It will include shooting, editing, and promoting the film. The project will start in July, concluding with a screening at the Alamo Draft House on September 26, 2013 at 7:30PM.

The Cinema Du Cannes Project is a Non Profit Organization, a collaboration between Midian Films, an independent film company and high school students in the Austin area, created to educate, empower, develop, and celebrate the next generation of emerging artists to be productive citizens, creative individuals and active participants in shaping our communities in the 21st century. Our program is dedicated to teaching the art of cinematic digital storytelling and digital media production to young people.

The Cinema Du Cannes Project is a visionary project in which youth led production teams collaborate together to produce films for submission into film festivals, including 6 films accepted into the Cannes Film Festival Court Métrage, and to perform community outreach by producing videos, public service announcements, and media services to non-profits in need for the past three years.
