DO YOU HAVE A PASSION FOR FILM AND SOCIAL CHANGE?       

HAVE YOU EVER WANTED TO GET BEHIND A CAMERA         
OR TAKE YOUR FILMMAKING SKILLS TO THE NEXT LEVEL?         

IF YOU ARE NODDING YES, THEN THIS PROGRAM IS FOR YOU!         

The Celebrating Journeys Immigrant & Refugee Inter-generational Stories Project is a documentary filmmaking workshop that brings young and senior new Canadians in a creative collaboration to produce short films. In this FREE program, you will:

          • Learn how to plan, shoot, and edit a short film
          • Work creatively with a small group of peers
          • Help tell the stories of elders in your community
          • Have a ridiculous amount of fun!

Ten young people (15-24 yrs old) will be chosen to participate in this project. We are looking for young people who are new to Canada and excited about filmmaking as a tool for social change. We welcome any level of experience!  

This is an inclusive program and is open to all identities. We encourage immigrant, newcomer, refugee, people of colour, queer, trans, and gender-creative youth to apply.

Your films will be featured at a gala screening after the program, submitted to the Reel Youth Film Festival, and distributed on YouTube and the Reel Youth website.

NOTE:  Transportation, food, an honourarium, and childminding are offered to participants as part of this project. Highschool students can receive 36 volunteer hours for participating in this program.

        The program spans 6 days. Dates and times are:
