Press Release

Opportunity for Creative Youth in Wilmington,

Young Hollywood Film Director, Ben Lee Foster, is kicking off his second annual film festival for the youth. This outstanding young film Director, who was recently featured on the Montel Williams Show and is presently interning with BET. He came up with a new concept to host a film festival that gives youth under the age of 18 an opportunity to try their hands at making fun and inspiring short movies, PSA’s and music videos.

“Follow Your Dreams” is this years’ theme. Youth today, are faced with a lot of movies, music videos and television shows that send negative messages. A change needs to be made and our youth are challenged to take a stand.. More inspiring projects need to be created and placed in venues that reach youth, and help them make better decisions in life in order to prepare for a healthier and more positive future.

The festival is open to creative youth, ages 8 to 17 that are willing to use media to create challenging projects that display positive messages for youth. The Director wants to showcase projects that help resolve peer pressure issues, send positive life choice messages, and of course to make people laugh.

During the festival, Ben will be featuring his latest movie, “PEEP GAME”. Ben once said, ”Being young, no one will take me serious, so I have to work hard to prove that I can do whatever I set my mind to. Being that Delaware is Ben’s hometown, he chose to return from Los Angeles to unfold the event there, to allow other youth opportunity to showcase their creative ideas as well.

The Ben Lee Foster Film Festival will be held at the Howard Historical Theater in Wilmington, Delaware on Saturday, June 19, 2010. Free workshops for youth and adults are offered during the morning.
