Call for Participants: Youth Queer Media Program (Fairy Tales Presentation Society, Calgary)
“Applications for our 2018 program are now open!
Share your story and your unique perspective on queer identity for youth today. The program is open to any youth 16-24 years of age, and no previous film experience is required.
Short films can be of any genre or type and final films can be up to 15 minutes long. Get creative, and propose an idea that excites you! What kinds of unique perspectives do you want to bring to an audience? What side of the story do you want to tell? Use this opportunity to explore the concepts of queer identity that interest you.
The Youth Queer Media Program (YQMP) gives audiences the opportunity to look through the eyes of our emerging filmmakers, and gives the filmmakers the tools and resources to share their perspective. This annual program runs December – March for youth ages 16-24 and provides the time and tools to create a short film, including workshops with industry professionals in storyboarding, editing, filming, and production. The program culminates in the world premiere of the films at the Fairy Tales Queer Film Festival in May, and the opportunity for additional screenings as they arise.
APPLICATION DEADLINE: November 15th, 2017”
