AB Film Festival

Participants are asked to produce a 10-15 minute documentary about their Alternative Break Trip to be screened during our Solidarity Action Week in April. These documentaries raise awareness about worldwide issues and tie it to our community in Los Angeles and LMU while promoting our AB Program and cultivating active participants.
