Muchas gracias a todos

Dear Editor:On behalf of Aspen Filmfest and the participants of this year’s Latino Youth Documentary Project, we would like to thank those individuals, businesses and funders who made this annual two-week workshop such a success.For the third year in a row, Aspen Filmfest offered a free workshop where 20 Latino boys and girls (ages 7-18) had the unique opportunity to create their own short films from start to finish. In addition to learning the basics of filmmaking and visual literacy, they also had the chance to tell their own stories and work as a creative team.We are always grateful for the depth and scope of community generosity and involvement in our programs. We were particularly fortunate to have the essential support of the Carbondale Community School and Comfort Inn in Carbondale.We also appreciated the participation of the Latino community, from La Mision to the many Latino businesses who welcomed and supported our students. This workshop simply would not have been possible without the community-minded vision of our funders – the Sheila Fortune Foundation, Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences, and Time Warner. And finally, a big thanks to the hard-working workshop participants and their families. It was a fun and inspiring two weeks! Enormous thanks to our countless angels who bring this and our many other youth education programs to this valley year-round.Amy TownsendAspen Filmfest
