"Making of a Movement" is where young filmmakers will work with professional filmmakers to create a feature length documentary. The young filmmakers have completed the POV Filmmaking Program and are now in an advanced Alumni Group, ready to tackle this ambitious project.

The subject of the film will be a youth-led organization, Manifesto Community Projects, and its annual hip hop festival. The heart of the film will celebrate the power of youth culture and the endless potential young people have when they collaborate. The doc will mix behind-the-scenes footage of Manifesto's incredible undertaking of the festival, with footage of the festival itself - including its national breakdance competition, massive art exhibition, and free outdoor concert. The energy and the creativity of the arts events will be used to underscore these characteristics in the individuals who put this festival together and the youth movement at large.

Budget Notes: This project could be done more modestly but POV aims to insert its young filmmakers in the professional world of the film so that they can learn how the industry. We use top production and service companies and ask for their help mentoring and donating services.
