REMEMBER THIS: A free online film program in response to the COVID-19 pandemic
“REMEMBER THIS is a free, inter-generational, online program engaging people to connect with each other and create films. Reel Youth facilitators will lead guided creative writing and filmmaking activities that will capture people’s experiences, wisdom, and relationship to the land while living through the Covid-19 pandemic. No experience is necessary!
Up to 60 participants from across British Columbia will be selected, based on geographic diversity, to create their own short film. The strongest films will be distributed through Reel Youth & Real Estate Foundation of BC’s online media channels and mixed together in a summary video.
REMEMBER THIS includes six online sessions (90 mins each) for participants of all ages to gather with Reel Youth facilitators over ZOOM and create community through the media arts. You will be introduced to principles of filmmaking as a tool for social change, and practice media production skills by shooting and editing an original short video from home. You will need access to a smartphone, tablet, or a video camera and computer in order to participate.
Sessions are from 10:30am to 12pm PDT on:
Tuesday, April 14
