Ghetto Film School

What’s in a Name

Agency: Wieden + Kennedy


Ghetto Film School’s new short film “What’s in a Name” amplifies GFS’s goal to give platforms to people whose stories are not always told and volume to voices often unheard. The film, via agency W+K NY, edited by Aika Miyake and produced by Bryght Young Things, pushes against some of the stereotypes and conventions that society often attributes to creatives and filmmakers of color and what they are (or aren’t) capable of. The film features voice over by Spike Lee and Alfre Woodard, both of whom are involved with the school. Additionally, the students of GFS star in and filmed many of the scenes, reflecting the inclusive force and spirit of the nonprofit. With humble beginnings in the South Bronx, this organization is redefining the future of film by serving thousands of young, multicultural creative talent across the world.
