This episode of Catalyst Radio previews an upcoming first-time film festival and competition called The Mosiac Film Experience 2012. This unique Grand Rapids event is a juried film competition for young people with the theme “Similar Stories…A Different Lens.” It also included educational elements such as media literacy and the culture of film-making.

In studio are two of the organizers for the event -- Gretchen Vinnedge and Eddie Tadlock -- to describe the focuses of the festival activities that take place Oct. 12-14, and invite film submissions through the Sept. 30 deadline.



Music featured this week on Catalyst Radio is from the band Fanfarlo, from the release Rooms Filled With Light – the song “Lenslife.”
