“Place Making” works from the Buffalo Youth Media Institute

On September 7, Buffalo Youth Media Institute will be premiering the screening of Buffalo Place Making, a series of youth produced films along with a directors’ Q&A (starting at 1:30pm). The event, held at the Burchfield-Penny Art Center, is being driven by Squeaky Wheel and Buffalo Center for Art and Technology. Participants in the project have delved into a Buffalo place making exercise, and will be showcasing their results of their productions, which touch upon the “richness and diversity of the landscape, population and history of the area.”


The short documentary films and animations were amplified by the appearance of Tiny Circus – a visiting artist group that helped to direct and produce the works. The storytelling exercise is the culmination of an eight week media arts program designed by Squeaky Wheel Film & Media Arts Center. The event is free and open to the public.
