2018 HIGHLIGHTS YOUTH FILM FESTIVAL In 2017, POPPYN Coordinator, Nuala Cabral, worked with youth from IAWA and Bafokeng Youth Centre to create short films. Film subjects included Nyaope, getting tested for HIV/AIDS, and the importance of parents talking to their children. Twilight Ebb Productions shot and edited a documentary sharing the stories of youth affected by unemployment and IAWAâ€™s work to empower them. Twilight Ebb Producer, James Williams, along with Nuala and three POPPYN student filmmakers from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania returned to Bafokeng in 2018 to screen the films. Students from Kitsong also submitted a film for screening. All cast and crew were invited to the Rustenburg Ster-Kinekor to view their films on the big screen. A community screening of all films followed, at the Bafokeng Conference Centre, with panel discussions after each film. Six films in total were screened. IAWA Ambassadors were the MCs.
