Media Video Gallery
Welcome to the pioneering Future Voices International Youth Media Video Gallery.
Here you will find original short films and documentaries, created by the participants of the Future Voices Intl summer youth communication media schools. The majority of the content is currently only in Spanish due to the pilot projects being rolled out throughout Latin America. However many of the films are not narrative based and can easily be understood. We currently do have a team working on creating English translations for the short films and documentaries, so please keep checking back regularly for updates.
