Robinson Film Center makes outreach a theme: from Queensboro to Mike Woods Park, Bossier, the RFC is teaching and presenting

Robinson Film Center's everywhere-at-once communications fellow, Chris Jay, says in the RFC newsletter, "Students enrolled in The Robinson Film Center’s “Lights, Camera, Learning!” program are currently shooting and editing their own short film, an original drama entitled “The Silent Prayers,” during twice-weekly classes at the Atkins Branch of Shreve Memorial Library in Shreveport’s Queensborough neighborhood. The film deals with serious issues facing teens today. A late Summer 2006 premier is expected. "

Last week RFC hosted an advance screening of “Everything or Nothing” with director Gary Chason and screenwriter/actress Sue Rock. It marked the opening of a partnership between RFC and Fairfield Studios.

“From Your Imagination to the Screen,” a documentary film created during an educational workshop hosted by The Robinson Film Center, premiered in Shreveport on Tuesday, May 30th at the Volunteers of America Highland Center. More than 100 of the students who helped create the film attended the premiere screening. The following night, a public screening was held at Centenary College. The 23-minute documentary film follows “Mr. Bill” creator Walter Williams as he hosted two days of hands-on animation workshops with area K-12 students from the Highland and Ledbetter Heights neighborhoods. Created by Bossier City native Allison Bohl, the film is currently being submitted to film festivals.
