YMCA Youth Institute Scores Win at San Luis Obispo International Film Festival
The YMCA Youth Institute has done it again. For the second year in a row, the YI students have managed to win at the San Luis Obispo International Film Festival. 93 international submissions were received by the SLO Film Fest. They selected only 25 to be screened. Out of that 25, 3 of them were Cambria Youth Institute films from this summer. Our summer movies “Push,” “One and Two,” “and “PacERGY” were screened. “PacERGY” our 1st place film in the Long Beach Youth Institute Film Festival, took home another award at the SLO International Film Festival for “Best Film created by a Group.” The YI production team received a cash prize of $150.
