Welcome to EVC
Bridging the Gap is the newest online project from EVC's New Media Arts Apprenticeship. We're proud that just this month, it won the prestigious Social Impact Award at the Emoti-con Youth Digital and Technology Challenge. This innovative project is designed to promote informed dialogue among youth, police, and the community, highlighting ineffective policing practices while also moving towards community problem-solving of this critical issue.
Thank you for making our benefit screening at the Film Society of Lincoln Center last Wednesday such an overwhelming success! We are extremely proud of our students for producing two extraordinary, thought-provoking films that explore teens' mental health needs in schools and the separation of families due to incarceration, substance abuse, and deportation.
