Trailers + Interviews

Every year our workshop programs highlight the emerging ‘visual’ voices of young artists and filmmakers, while giving individuals with special needs such as autism, the opportunity to make films of their own and to learn side by side with their peers. Participation in World Arts’ events and programs supports individuals of all ages and abilities to find success in the creative industries and beyond.

 Here’s a short clip from the World Arts Experimental Film Workshop. Each year every attendee to the festival can participate in the making of a Cameraless Scratch Film with filmmaker and educator Lois Siegel. WAF bar image 2015
