Now in our fifth year, we are very excited to offer the TROUBLEMAKERS 5.0 film program, for the first time in virtual format!

Aspiring young filmmakers + changemakers can participate in this FREE 7-session program to learn filmmaking skills and produce inspirational short films about LGBT2Q+ troublemakers. And troublemakers (roughly ages 50+) get to share their stories and wisdom!

We’ll premiere the films at a public online screening, and they will be featured on Telus Video-on-Demand and online!


In this FREE program, you will:                                                                                  

          • Learn how to plan, shoot, and edit a short film, all from home
          • Create art in an LGBTQ2S+ space
          • Receive a FREE 6-month software license for Adobe Premiere Rush
          • Receive a $100 honourarium
          • Work creatively with a group of peers
          • Have a ridiculous amount of fun!

This is an inclusive program and is open to all identities. We encourage Indigenous, immigrant, newcomer, refugee, people of colour, queer, two-spirit, trans,  and gender-creative youth to apply. The program is open to youth 14-30 years old.

The dates and times are:

    Fri. May 28              4:00pm - 5:30pm
    Mon. May 31           4:00pm - 5:30pm
