If you are nodding yes, then this program is for you! 

The Age is More Virtual Film Program is a filmmaking workshop that brings young and older Canadians together to produce short films.

And it is entirely online! Join us for this innovative new style of video production!

      In this FREE program, you will:                                                                                  

          • Learn how to plan, shoot, and edit a short film, all from home
          • Receive a FREE 6-month software license for Adobe Premiere Rush
          • Receive a $100 honourarium
          • Work creatively with a small group of peers
          • Help tell the stories of isolated seniors
          • Have a ridiculous amount of fun!

Up to 18 young people will be chosen to participate in this project, to produce 9 new films. Your films will be featured at a virtual gala after the program, submitted to the Reel Youth Film Festival, and distributed on AgeIsMore.com, YouTube and the Reel Youth website.

      You are:

          • Excited about filmmaking and interested in using film for social change
          • Curious to try a new model of collaborative, isolation-era filmmaking
          • Between the ages of 13 and 29
          • Available for ALL 11 program sessions listed below
          • Able to access a computer or laptop that can run Zoom (details) and                  Adobe Premiere Rush (details).

In our work we strive to embody what we hope to see in the world—a just humanity and community in which people are free to be themselves fully and without fear. A community where no one is exiled or silenced because of gender, gender expression, race, color, ethnic or national origin, religion, sexual/affectional orientation, age, class, physical character or disability. We believe in the power of storytelling to make connections across difference.
