The primary goals of CINEMA are to teach young adults the art, business and science of filmmaking; to provide these participants a hands-on experience of making their own films in a realistic format that encourages them to consider filmmaking as a viable career alternative; and to explore the creative process of cinema as a means to increase self-esteem and develop decision-making skills necessary in any profession.
