Concrete Stories: The 6th Annual BRIC Youth Media Festival

Concrete Stories is a Brooklyn-based, youth-organized film media festival that seeks to represent the eccentricity and authenticity of youth voices. We aim to cultivate conversations around the power and potential of our generation. We want audiences to gain new perspectives and foster hope for a more expressive, more inclusive future.

Concrete Stories is a showcase of media produced by New York City youth under age 21. The festival is organized and curated by BRIC’s Youth Media Fellows, a group of media-savvy local high school students as part of the BRIC Youth Media Fellowship. 

Meet the 2019 Youth Media Fellows!


MAY 29, 2019
6:30 - 8:30PM
