The Festival is hosted by the non-profit organization Through the Lens – Houston whose mission is to teach kids the power of storytelling through their own eyes, empowering them to create short films on a variety of topics affecting their communities.
Through The Lens is a 501 (c)(3) in Houston. It’s mission is to teach kids the power of storytelling through their own eyes. We empower them to create short films on a variety of topics affecting their communities.
Sports and Art are two of the most cut public programs for school age kids in the US. This is creating a wider divide of the haves and have-nots. We fill a gap in the educational landscape through our programming, workshops and access to sports.
We will screen short films and have sports activities for kids as a part of the festival. This will cultivate a larger audience by presenting shorter stories, while also increasing kids access to sports.
