"The Big Tell" Film Showcase Brings Local Stories To Light

Oct 16, 2018

It’s that undiscovered story that begs to be told, the one that makes you see our Central Valley in a whole different light – that’s the mission of The Big Tell Showcase running on Friday October 19 at the Tower Theater in Fresno. The showcase, which selects ten filmmakers to win competitive grants, results in ten mini-documentaries about the people, culture, and issues important to the Central Valley.

Listen above to hear an interview with Laura Maciel from the Central Valley Community Foundation, the organization that funds the showcase, about the second year of this unique storytelling project and for some excerpts from this year’s documentaries.
