The 9 Media Lab at KCTS and One Reel have partnered to create the Bumbershoot Creative Core (BCC), a one-of-a-kind opportunity for the next generation of filmmakers. This year, 70 youth throughout the region became the official filmmakers of the Bumbershoot Festival. Paired with professionals in the field, BCC teams got full access to the festival and interviewed artists, filmed performances, and covered the other amazing arts and cultural events that are a part of the weekend.
