Community Law Week will culminate with a celebration of young filmmakers at the YOUthFILM Project award ceremony and film screening on Thursday, May 1. This filmmaking contest provides students with an opportunity to express themselves creatively, while learning about the justice system and the importance of voting. Participants produce short films or videos based on this year's theme: American Democracy and the Rule of Law: Why Every Vote Matters. The top films will be screened for the public at the Hollywood Theatre in Northeast Portland. Prizes will be awarded by Oregon Supreme Court Chief Justice Thomas A. Balmer. A reception after the screening will be held at Columbia River Brewing.
