Community Art Center's 26th Annual Do It Your Damn Self!!

National Youth Film Festival, the longest running youth film festival in the country!

Join us for an evening celebrating teen voices from across the nation, featuring the 2023 film reel, food from Tandoor and Curry and Naco Taco, pop-up bar from Lord Hobo Brewing, music from DJ Slick Vick, and a panel discussion with the featured filmmakers.

While this event is free and open to all, please note that some of the films include content that might not be appropriate for children.

Registration recommended!

You’ll be the first to learn of event details or if the location or date changes due to inclement weather.

Community Art Center has served residents of the Port neighborhood in Cambridge, Massachusetts, since 1937.

The organization ensures that youth in the neighborhood have the same access to arts experiences as the youth of other communities in Cambridge.

The center became known as a space for young people to explore creative expression and build their narrative storytelling abilities.

In 1996, six teen girls at the center decided they’d had enough of the lack of representation and the misrepresentation they were seeing in the media.

They picked up cameras and began to tell their own stories, creating a film festival that is hyperlocal but has a national reach.
