The Community Stories Festival highlights the stories of people, places, and events from our local community. The festival is open to the public and gives local residents a chance to learn more about their communities and meet both the filmmakers and people featured in the films.

The festival features films made by professional filmmakers in our community that spotlight local stories, as well as works produced by adults and youth in our our production classes and camps. First-time filmmakers are given the opportunity to focus on learning effective storytelling and the technical aspects of using a camera and editing equipment.
