  The Arlington International Film Festival (AIFF) is pleased to announce its partnership with     the Community Art Center in Cambridge, MA. Our collaboration will began in 2015 as we join          together for their 18th Annual National Youth Film Festival, “DO IT YOUR DAMN SELF!”, March 18 to 21. Community Art Center founded in 1932, is a neighborhood institution committed to cultivating an engaged community of youth whose powerful artistic voices transform their lives, their neighborhoods and their worlds. The Art Center has established an excellent track record of providing creative and challenging learning opportunities for youth in the context of a family-like environment with intensive social and emotional supports including academic help, mental health and transportation services and up to three full meals a day. Through its programs, Community Art Center promotes organizational values: “We believe in the power of young people, we believe in the power of artistic expression, we believe in taking care of ourselves and each other and we believe in creating positive change in our neighborhood and beyond.” The Art Center achieves its mission through intensive, year-round activities for a core group of youth ages 5-19 and through youth-led community programming that engages local and national audiences in quality artistic experiences. The Teen Media Program was founded in 1970 to give teens an opportunity to voice feelings and express themselves to the larger public with media arts as their tool. The program first began by offering basic black-and-white and Polaroid photography, and super-8 filmmaking. The addition of the video production element in 1986 helped establish the “Do It Your Damn Self!” National Youth Video and Film Festival, a nationally recognized festival. TMP offers seven-week units throughout the spring, summer, and fall sessions in video production, photography, and sound, as well as opportunities to participate in the annual DIYDS Festival; Genuine Productions, a youth business venture, collaborate with visiting artists and exhibit work in public spaces.
