PROJECT VIEWFINDER began in January 2013 after the Film Center sought out young adults transitioning from homelessness to self-sufficiency that were interested in learning media production techniques. Working three days per week and led by School of Film lead faculty member Bushra Azzouz and supporting filmmakers, the project empowers participants to tell their stories using the medium of film. PROJECT VIEWFINDER is endeavoring to engage the Film Center's School of Film with underserved members of our community, seeking to enact change on a direct level.
