There are so many ways the LRFF has expanded this year. More days, more films, more parties, and more visiting filmmakers. But one of the best ways is in our LRFFYOUTH! Program. Check out a full list of the programs this weekend from LRFFYOUTH! coordinator Casey Sanders.

1. Do you know students who love writing or journalism? Screenwriting might be a great fit! This weekend’s LRFF Youth! Event features a screenwriting workshop with Graham Gordy – screenwriter for Mike Meyer’s film “Love Guru.”
