Eastside Gives Back is a documentary about Upstate New York Transplant Services, also known as UNYTS. It shares the stories of people whose lives have been affected by transplants facilitated by the Donate Life Center on the Eastside.
Buffalo's East Side was the topic of the BUFFALO YOUTH MEDIA INSTITUTE in 2008. A collaboration between Squeaky Wheel and Preservation Buffalo Niagara, the BUFFALO YOUTH MEDIA INSTITUTE is a youth media and community history initiative which gives up to 20 young people (age 13-18/8th-12th grade) from Buffalo, NY and surrounding areas the opportunity to learn about the history of their local community by making documentaries about Buffalo. The project starts in September and ends in June and has been funded by the John R. Oishei Foundation, the Margaret L. Wendt Foundation, the Baird Foundation, and the National Endowment for the Arts.
