New York, NY (Sept. 13, 2011) - The Ghetto Film School (GFS), Film Society of Lincoln Center and Google announced today GFS’s 12th Annual Public Screening at Lincoln Center, to take place on Monday September 26th. The event will showcase 10 outstanding short films created by the 2011–2012 GFS Fellows. The projects will also be spotlighted on YouTube’s Homepage, allowing viewers from around the globe to watch the films in real time.

The free public screening is an opportunity for the teenage Fellows to showcase their work and compete against their peers for awards; a distinguished panel of judges will award the students who create the top three films $1000 scholarships from Google to advance their artistic pursuits.

This year’s jury includes top film industry talent like Jim Jarmusch (writer/director, The Limits of Control), Rose Kuo (executive director, Film Society of Lincoln Center), Melissa Leo (Academy Award-winning actor, The Fighter), Kevin Proudfoot (Creative Director, Google Creative Lab), and Jay Rabinowitz (editor, The Tree of Life).

"I’m always surprised and inspired by the stories Ghetto Film School students screen at this event. We’re incredibly proud of our partnership with GFS and the opportunity we have to work with the Fellows as they create and share their films with the world,” said Kevin Proudfoot, Executive Creative Director, Google Creative Lab.

The GFS Fellows Program is a rigorous 15-month immersion into cinematic storytelling featuring major industry filmmakers and artists as guest instructors, including Spike Jonze, David O. Russell, Amy Adams, Jason Reitman, Lee Daniels, Ed Burns and many more.

“Every year, Ghetto Film School expands the quality and depth of the training and services that we provide our students,” said Derrick Cameron, GFS Program Director. “And this year is no exception. We’ve had outstanding guest instructors, and these new partnerships allow us to deliver great resources to every GFS Fellow – from tickets to exclusive screenings at the Film Society, to customized instruction from Google’s top creatives.”

“As our newest educational partner, Ghetto Film School is raising the bar for talented storytellers in New York City,” said Rose Kuo, Executive Director of the Film Society. “We’re thrilled to be working with them on a variety of projects, and this fall’s screening promises to be a real highlight of the partnership.”

The screening will take place on Monday September 26th at 7:30 PM at the Film Society of Lincoln Center’s Walter Reade Theatre (165 West 65th Street, Upper Level, between Broadway & Amsterdam). For additional information, please visit www.ghettofilm.org.
