Uprooted Film Project:  Make a Scene

Making a Scene is a FREE film workshop series meant to amplify the voices of LGBTQ+ youth ages 13-19 who live in Kitchener/Waterloo (Six Nations Grand River Territory).

We all have important experiences to share and stories to tell. However, in the media we see queer and trans folks that don’t represent our stories or our realities.

Making a Scene is an opportunity to break down those stereotypes, flip the scripts, and and re-write the characters. We write the story, shoot it, and put it on screen for everyone to see, feel, and relate to.

From April 1st – Oct/Nov 2017, participants will be trained in filmmaking, editing and story-telling to collaboratively create their own short films.
