The Oakland Innovation Film Lab (OIFL) showcases a broad range of cinematic creativity from award-winning documentarians, emerging artists, and student filmmakers. OIFL specifically focuses on innovative film projects that employ non-traditional themes, experimental film techniques, or that simply take a new approach to storytelling through film. Each of the films selected for the 2012 Oakland Innovation Film Lab not only has something new to add to the genre of film but also give voice to pressing societal challenges locally as well as national. Themes addressed in this year’s films include modern explorations of love and relationships; rocketing high school drop-out rates; youth empowerment through hip-hop; and cultural relationships to food and food justice.
