Keep iYouth Filming!

For the past 10 years thousands of the future filmmakers of Austin have found the tools - the technology - and the passion to share their voices through the movies they produce.

As the nonprofit manager of Austin's world renowned public access telesvision studios -- we were proud to make sure all youth had access to their filmmaking dreams.

Now -- as we plan the final iYouth Film Festival and Filmmakers Boot Camp this summer -- WE NEED YOUR HELP! The grant we received only goes so far and we very much need to raise additional funds!

A pledge of $5.00 will help fund our scholarship program so more underserved kids can attend Boot Camp. A pledge of $10.00 goes a long way in making honorariums available to the hardest working indie filmmakers anywhere - the pros and artists who give of their time to mentor these youth. 

We look at each and every dollar as a jesture of goodwill towards your community - one that goes a long to make this last iYouth Media Film Festival and Filmmakers Boot Camp a complete success.

And we think like Bernie - it's not the Big-Donor-Bucks that make iYouth work - its hundreds of folks like you who can contribute $1 or $5 or $10 - any amount matters to the young man who received our first scholarship this year.

His mother wrote that she while she battled breast cancer - her son was her hero and that he was very excited and passionate about going to our Filmmakers Boot Camp.

"He has done so much for me as a caregiver while battling cancer starting at 13 years old. I would like to give him something back to show how special he is and how much I appreciated his strength during hard times."

All of us at channelAustin so appreciate all your support these past 10 years! Thank you for any help you can give!!!
