Past Partner Event: Asian Pacific Film Festival Recap

Itsy Bitsy Shorts

Project by Project LA volunteers had fun participating with the kids as Visual Communications brought back the Itsy Bitsy Shorts after a few years of hiatus. Families were able to enjoy short but entertaining films, and then be entertained some more with fun activities. Kids were able to learn about creating animations, look through film equipment, watch their drawings come alive through play motion film, and learn and experiment the evolution of cameras with a "Film Petting Zoo"! Volunteers definitely had fun learning with the kids as well!

Wet Sand: Voices from LA

Project by Project LA had the honor of co-presenting Wet Sand: Voices from LA with Visual Communications, and experience a raw and emotional documentary by Dai Sil Kim-Gibson. The documentary is a reawakening for many of us as we look back 25 years since the 1992 LA Riots, seeing how far we have come, and yet understanding that we still have much work to do. Project by Project members along with the rest of the audience were able to enjoy a panel including filmmaker Dai Sil Kim-Gibson, Charles Burnett, Funmilola Fagbamila, Alison de la Cruz, and Ayuko Babu.

Volunteer of the Month: May PbP-LA is proud to announce that our May Volunteer of the Month (VOM) is Cindy Lee, our Manager of Team Development!

Cindy has been a member of PbP for two years, and is in her first year as manager of Team Development. In her short time as manager, she has added immense value to the organization through her creative ideas and positive energy. She's helped develop and lead many of our team activities at this year's Retreat, and currently leads the Family Challenges program.

Her advice for new members is to be active with PbP from outreach events to socials. "You can get to know SC members on a personal and professional level and learn a lot about each person and how they make up PbP. You realize how much PbP has become a part of your life when you talk about it to family, friends, and coworkers and even strangers you meet!"

Congratulations Cindy!
