After completing two weeks of a Digital Film Workshop conducted by Chewy Lin and Kattil Kendall alongside the supervision of Kathy Jetnil-Kijiner, Jobod Silk, and Rosenet Timius, Jo-Jikum held a film presentation for the public that showed the film efforts of those involved in the workshop.

Four newly created films were shown during the presentation at the Jo-Jikum facility. Not only were the films well made but they had great messages to offer to viewers.
“It is now up to you young filmmakers to showcase the voice of your people with all the skills and knowledge you have acquired,” said ilm instructor Lin.
Those participating in the workshop and making films were:

• Neina Wilson and Jewan Jamore, Kwajalein Atoll High School
• Ryback Dominick, Goodwind Silk, Dantyann Tartious and Helmina Joel, Marshall Islands High School
• Alatera Martin and Cassandra Donato, Majuro Baptist Christian Academy
