On My Block Films is looking for local residents to make short films with their neighbors as a way to create relationships through filmmaking.
From the website:
“On My Block” is a film challenge that brings communities closer together by inviting
filmmakers of all levels to create short narrative or documentary videos on their block using only their block’s residents as cast and crew.
“Our goal is to create 50 films (10 from each borough) by Oct. 31st and I think it’d be incredible if you were able to share this story with your readers. It would increase the amount of participants by inspiring them and directly impact the closeness on a significant number of blocks in the city,” said Erin Pope, Community Outreach for OMB in an email to NoMa Blog.
