You are invited to join us on Thursday, April 20 at the Arena Cinelounge in Los Angeles to meet our 2017 Lights, Camera, Liberty! mentors and participants, and learn how they will be applying their new training to fight the battle for liberty in video and beyond. 

The annual Lights, Camera, Liberty! L.A. Workshop is an intensive storytelling and video production workshop run by famous Hollywood filmmakers and designed to take free market think tanks’ video and storytelling skills to the next level. This isn’t just about video—it’s about telling the stories of liberty in a compelling, inspiring way. It’s about empowering think tanks to tell a more creative and emotional story.

This program produces incredible results. The most recent class of participants received a collective 1.2 million video views in the year prior to starting the program, compared to 9.4 million views in the year since their training! 

We will also show an example of compelling narrative story telling with advanced screening of I Am or How Jack Became Black, a new film that explores one filmmaker’s challenge to rise above Identity Politics and hold on to his individuality.


7:00 - 8:00 p.m. Reception (Beverages only)

8:00 - 10:00 p.m. Private Screening of I Am or How Jack Became Black followed by Q&A with the filmmaker
