Brampton Youth & Homeless Film Project (Reel Youth)
“Have you always wanted to get behind a camera, or to take your filmmaking skills to the next level?
Do you want to make a difference?
If you are nodding yes, then this program is for you!
• Learn how to plan, shoot, and edit a short film
• Work creatively with a small group of peers
• Get to know & make a film about an older person struggling with homelessness in Brampton
• Have a ridiculous amount of fun!
The Youth and Homeless Film Project is a unique filmmaking workshop that will bring together youth and homeless seniors, in a creative collaboration to produce short films.
In this FREE program, you will work with a small group to create films that explore the stories of 6 adults in your community who are homeless or living in poverty.
18 youth aged 14-24 will be chosen to participate. No experience necessary!
All of the films will be screened as a part of a community film festival. They will also be submitted to the touring Reel Youth Film Festival, distributed on YouTube, Facebook, and showcased on the Reel Youth website.
Meals and snacks are included!
Transit tickets will be provided if you need them.
