by Paul Davis, PACTFilm Instructor

During each PACTFilm session, youth brainstorm to come up with a theme or idea for a short film – usually a social issue that teens or the community are faced with. This fall, the latest group of youth assembled with mental health on the mind.
Ideas also included the age old topic of “peer pressure”, but this time with a twist on social media and how influencers like celebrity and Facebook “likes” make impressions on our minds and the decisions we make.
When complete and edited, All PACT youth films are published on our YouTube page. Take a look at some of the youth films from the past >
