A PARTNERSHIP OF

The Latino Film Institute Youth Cinema Project is a statewide, project-based learning educational program founded by actor/activist Edward James Olmos that develops creativity and reinforces literacy in 4th-12th grade public schools through the art of filmmaking. We partner with school districts, administrators and faculty to ensure the program supports Common Core Standards and overall learning objectives. We provide industry professionals, teacher training, curriculum outlines, and workplace exposure beyond the classroom.
