Troublemakers

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.
