Stories produced in Creative Narrations workshops featured at Media that Matters Film Festival two years in a row.
The Media That Matters Film Festival celebrates films, videos, and new media that inspire people to speak out and take action for social change. Bad Choices, by Aderian Fair, was selected to be part of the 2005 Festival and declared winner of the Youth Voice Award. In "Bad Choices", Aderian describes how his need for attention led to an arrest for bank robbery. He offers advice to his peers, telling them, "It's just not worth the attention." Lean on Me, written, directed, and edited by Harold Clinton, age 13 of Springfield, MA, and co-produced by Creative Narrations and the Center for Reflective Community Practice at MIT, won the Youth Digital Story Award at the 2004 Media that Matters National Film Festival.
