Impacting Youth through Film

The Social Cinema Foundation provides disadvantaged youth with the opportunity to express themselves through film. Focused on high school students, the program will teach the skills of cinema in a structured, classroom environment working with professionals on a film festival worthy project. The Social Cinema Foundation was created to fulfill a need for the voices of the youth to be heard and shared with the world. Satie Gossett fell into education after a lifetime of working in the entertainment industry to become an instructor and mentor. He immediately recognized a need and an opportunity to create a space to educate and foster proactive youth to express themselves. The Social Cinema Foundation strives to prepare its students to develop their voice through a variety of courses ranging from the fundamentals of filmmaking, financial literacy, and mental wellness. We seek to continuously develop these programs by preparing the youth to create a positive future in life and the creative space.
