Off the Block is an award-winning, media literacy and video production workshop that is designed to teach local high-school aged students all the necessary skills to make their own documentary film. The free annual workshop is hosted at UC Riverside’s ARTSblock and started as a direct response to the profound need for youth arts programming in the Riverside area. Our student filmmakers have gone on to win awards and receive recognition from several film festivals and media organizations, such as Sundance, PBS SoCal, Big Bear Film Festival, Riverside International Film Festival, Palm Springs International Film Festival and Adobe Youth Voices. Our Off the Block alumni are now students at colleges and universities such as MIT, UCLA, USC, Chapman, Art Center College of Design, Cal Arts, UC Berkeley and UC Riverside, just name a few.
