Troublemakers Film Project

Spotlight(s): Catalysts

This June, VQFF and Reel Youth paired up to create a unique filmmaking project that matched aspiring youth filmmakers with changemaking seniors whose stories deserve to be told. The result is a heartwarming collection of new friendships that span generations, and 10 new short documentaries of leaders who continue to make indelible, progressive impacts. Featured are Mary Bryson, Bon Fabian, Gordon Hardy, Janine Fuller, Sadie Kuehn, Sandy-Leo Laframboise, Stephen Lytton, David Myers, Kimberly Nixon, and Reginald Manning (AKA Mona Lee Empress 2 of Vancouver 1973).

With special thanks to Reel Youth’s Mark Vonesch and Mutya Macatumpag, and Out in Schools’ Jen Sung.
