The VQFF, Love Intersections, and Reel Youth are teaming up to offer this unique video project for a second year!

Aspiring young filmmakers + changemakers can participate in this free 8-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, immigrant, newcomer, refugee, people of colour, queer, two-spirit, trans, and gender creative youth to apply. The program is open to youth up to the age of 30. This program has 8 sessions. The dates and times are:  
                                              LOCATION: SFU Woodwards [map]

Meals and snacks are included!

Youth and senior participants will receive an honourarium
upon completion of the program, and highschool students
can receive 40 volunteer hours for participating.
