OUR PROGRAMS 

 

Raleigh Film Festival artist programs provide dynamic support at every step of the creative journey for individuals with distinct voices in art, film, theatre, film composing, episodic storytelling, and emerging platforms . Each program consists of Labs, Festival student funds, Workshops, and Ongoing Resources for artists to nurture their projects and sustain their careers. Through year-round activities, we provide the space for artists to create and share their stories with the world. Since our inception, the Institute’s programs have supported many artists and fostered a community for independent painter , and film storytellers to learn, grow, connect, and give back. 

 Where We're Meant To Be by Michael Howard
Small moments can change our entire path in life. Travel in and out of the lives of a number of vastly different people as each one connects to the next during their most pivotal moments.

RAISING DION 

Written by Dennis Liu, illustrated by Jason PiperbergImagine Superman, but from Martha Kent's point of view. Or imagine Spiderman, but from Aunt May's point of view. This is a superhero story, but from the parent's point of view. But unlike her son, she doesn't have any powers. 

 

PREMISE: 

Nicole, raises her 7 year old son, Dion, who has superpowers. Life was hard enough keeping up with the bills, let alone trying to keep track of her son’s invisibility, plasma powers, and telekinesis. In order to study his progress, Nicole films her son 24/7 with the help of her friend, Pat, who is an aspiring filmmaker. But when Nicole starts to notice mysterious men tailing her, and with Dion’s developing abilities constantly changing and becoming more powerful and possibly evil, she must find the courage deep within herself that she can raise Dion on her own.
