We build community when we share our stories - whether they be a memory, an experience or just simply telling what we think is great about this place. STORY MATTERS. is a story collecting project from The Rapidian and GRTV.

This past weekend, November 1 and 2, the Mosaic Film Experience was brought to the Wealthy Theatre. Gretchen Vinnedge, Education Director of the Community Media Center (CMC), talks about her involvement in the Mosaic Film Experience and encourages local young people to get involved in filmmaking. Vinnedge was a judge for this year's event, selecting films to be showed during the two week experience. 

Vinnedge also talks about film camps that the CMC holds in the summer and workshops now available throughout the year. Local students can come to the workshops on Friday afternoons, and Vinnedge encourages local young filmmakers or those who are interested in learning more about filmmaking to take advantage of these workshops to prepare to enter their own films in next year's event.

This summer, one of the summer camps was an animation camp called "Girl Power," where students examined the roles found for women in animated filmmaking history. Students then created their own female superheroines. Student films from this camp can all be found online on YouTube on the CMCEducation channel.
