NOTE: THIS PROGRAM TOOK PLACE IN EARLY 2019. No further Troublemakers programs are scheduled at this time.

Out on Screen (Vancouver Queer Film Festival) is teaming up with Reel Youth and Love Intersections, to offer this unique video project for a fourth 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.

We’ll premiere the 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 & mentors 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, gender-creative, and deaf youth to apply. The program is open to youth 14-30 years old.
