Rated Y for Youth

Rated Y for Youth

Now in its 11th year, Rated Y for Youth was founded upon the idea of facilitating media literacy through thought-provoking documentaries. DOXA selects programming for high school students and youth to foster an appreciation for cinema while giving young audiences an opportunity to engage in open dialogue on a broad range of social issues. Each Rated Y for Youth screening is followed by a post-screening discussion with filmmakers and community members.
