This past summer, Virgin Mobile and Kyocera partnered up on a homeless charity event called All Access, where young filmmakers between the ages of 16 and 22 were given a peek behind the curtain at the star-studded Virgin Mobile FreeFest.
The contestants were awarded a chance to film rockumentaries with world famous acts such as Public Enemy, Weezer, Franz Ferdinand, Taking Back Sunday and Blink 182, among others.
“It is important to support opportunities like Kyocera’s All Access that empower young people,” Public Enemy’s Flavor Flav told RadarOnline.com. “The youth of the nation are talented and bring unique voices and unique perspectives. This project will help America recognize that.”
Now, a series of six previews, culled from the filmmakers’ footage, will be aired every Tuesday evening each week through Dec. 14 on the Independent Film Channel, as well as billboard.com and heavy.com.
“The 14 filmmakers who created All Access were chosen from thousands of applicants because of their passion and artistic vision, both of which shine through in this documentary,” Kyocera’s Tom Maguire told RadarOnline.com. “We’re grateful that IFC is supporting these young artists by bringing their work to millions of people, and proud that the film’s first full-length screening will be to benefit homeless youth.”
The film’s first full-length screening is slated for Nov. 18 in Washington, D.C. at the George Washington University’s Lisner Auditorium, to benefit Sasha Bruce House, a non-profit homeless shelter in the area.
