Announcing ASFI’s BUILDING CAREERS, BUILDING COMMUNITIES initiative and the launch of the WEG Short Film Lab!

ASFI is proud to announce the creation of it’s BUILDING CAREERS, BUILDING COMMUNITIES initiative. This innovative battery of programs brings together notable filmmakers and media artists from across South Florida to lead a series of public arts programs in service of underserved communities throughout Miami-Dade County. The battery of public arts programs produced as a result of ASFI’s BUILDING CAREERS, BUILDING COMMUNITIES initiative will usher creative mentoring resources as well as economic and artistic resources into underserved communities in Miami-Dade County.

ASFI’s BUILDING CAREERS, BUILDING COMMUNITIES initiative houses ASFI’s latest and most extensive partnership with the White Elephant Group to date, the WEG Short Film Lab. The WEG Short Film Lab will be launching in November 2021, accepting applications from South Florida filmmakers to create original short films under the WEG flag as well as work with ASFI and its partners to produce new public arts programs in underserved communities. Ranging in scope and impact from young artist production mentoring programs to public workshops and film screenings, ASFI is proud to be partnering with this dedicated group of South Florida artists to create new, innovative opportunities to serve underserved communities across Miami-Dade County.
