How Film Moves Communities

In 2014 Citizen Film and Green Streets received a grant from ArtPlace. This grant prompted a collaboration between residents of the Western Addition neighborhood, city agencies and non-profits to re-imagine and re-invent the Buchanan Mall. In November 2015, a day-long barbecue celebration marked the completion of Phase 1 of the New Buchanan Mall project. And in November 2018, local voters will decide on a bond measure that could help with Phase 2.

In the meantime, Citizen Film, local residents and non-profits have been creating new work to address relevant issues in the community, and to develop and strengthen partner relationships.
