Why is the Your Day. Your City. Your Future. Film Campaign (One Day in the LRGV) a great initiative for the Rio Grande Valley?

Your Day, Your City, Your Future Film Campaign (One Day In the LRGV) is a great initiative for the Rio Grande Valley because it will demonstrate the spirit and originality of the Lower Rio Grande culture. It provides a platform for creative expression of the multiple layers and uniqueness of our communities and our ecosystems. It will help foster voices that are otherwise unheard through the inspiration of new and seasoned film makers and their respective organizations choosing to answer the important questions posed. The efforts will be an inspiration for others to explore our area for education, travel and renewal of spirit. It will also offer participants and viewers an opportunity to understand and share why we live here & love the Lower Rio Grande Valley.

Why is the Your Day. Your City. Your Future. Film Campaign (One Day in the LRGV) a great initiative for the Rio Grande Valley?

The uniqueness of the Rio Grande Valley's personalities, sights and sounds is hard to miss. While resources are scarce in the region, citizens of the Rio Grande Valley often come together to support each other and to walk toward a better future hand in hand. This story of resilience and communal spirit of the Rio Grande Valley is one worth sharing with the rest of the world. To capture the complexity of this place there is perhaps no better media than film.

Why is the Your Day. Your City. Your Future. Film Campaign (One Day in the LRGV) a great initiative for the Rio Grande Valley?

I believe the Your Day. Your City. Your Future. Film Campaign (One day in the LRGV) is a great opportunity to expose the community force and the social structures in the Rio Grande Valley.There is a social stigma on the communities that live along the border, ignoring the grassroots movements that are already in place. Community Organizers, Developers and Designers are working together to improve the quality of life and the way of living in the valley, breaking ground with holistic initiatives that can serve as a model to many neighborhoods and cities in the Nation. Providing the space to share these efforts will not only benefit the work in progress but to also improve the perception outsiders have about the Valley and Valley residents have about themselves.
