The Bushwick Film Festival has announced that Slate Property Group will be a Proud Sponsor of the festival’s 2014 edition. This sponsorship will help fund youth film and media literacy programs for the upcoming summer.
The Bushwick Film Festival’s Youth Film Program is a six-week program designed to educate students in the art of filmmaking. The program advocates the importance of film in fostering well-rounded youth communities. By the end of the program, the class will have a completed short film to showcase at the 2014 Bushwick Film Festival.
The BFF Media Training for Local Businesses and Residents program is designed to educate small business owners and bring them up to speed with the rising trend of media usage. This program will cover marketing and benefits of social media sites. Registration for both programs for Summer 2014 will open in June.
Slate Property Group is currently heading an initiative to help nurture and support local art and community education programs in the area, such as the Bushwick Film Festival. This is line with their goals of creating affordable housing, bringing in more business and safety to Bushwick.
