The Troublemakers Film Project is an initiative that brought young LGBT2Q+ filmmakers together to create a series of mini-documentary portraits on change-making seniors.
The VQFF partnered with Reel Youth to pair aspiring youth filmmakers with troublemakers ages 55+ to create video portraits of LGBT2Q+ individuals who have survived and thrived, and whose stories need to be told.
Youth learned how to plan, shoot, and edit a short film, to work creatively with a small group of their peers, and to help tell the stories of elders in their community.
