Vancouver Queer Film Festival, Love Intersections, and Reel Youth are teaming up to offer this unique video project for a second year!
Aspiring young filmmakers (ages 30 and under) + changemakers can participate in this free 7-session program to learn filmmaking skills and produce inspirational short documentaries about senior LGBT2Q+ troublemakers. And troublemakers (roughly ages 50+) get to share their stories with the world in a portrait-style short documentary.
Yep, double trouble.
And then we’ll premiere these films at the Vancouver Queer Film Festival in August!
In this program, youth participants will:
— learn how to plan, shoot, and edit a short film
— work creatively with a small group of peers
— help share the stories of LGBT2Q+ elders in their community
— have a ridiculous amount of fun!
This is an inclusive program and is open to all identities. We encourage indigenous, non-indigenous, deaf and hard of hearing, immigrant, newcomer, refugee, people of colour, queer, two-spirit, trans, and gender creative youth to apply.
ASL interpreters are being secured.
