This year the Funhouse Commons, the Orcas Center, and the Orcas Island Library are teaming up to participate in the Reel Youth Film Festival. Reel Youth, based in Vancouver B.C., is a not-for-profit group supporting youth, adults and organizations to create and distribute engaging films.
On Friday, October 10th, in conjunction with the Orcas Island Film Festival, the Orcas Center will be hosting the Reel Youth “Best of Fest“ based on the youth jury’s selections and will feature locally made films.
Thanks to the Friends of the Orcas Island Library, the teens have a GoPro camera that they can check out after a short training session. Contact Holly at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
If teens are looking for some guidance into what goes into making a good film, from initial planning to editing, they can contact The Funhouse Commons to be connected to a film mentor.
Local youth filmmakers have the chance to be juried into the International Festival in Vancouver B.C. The completed films must be submitted by August 31, to the Orcas Center.
Call Kim at 360.376.7177 or email email@example.com if you have questions.
