Calling all aspiring filmmakers ages 13 and up!

Have you always wanted to get behind a camera, or would like to take your filmmaking skills to the next level?

If you are nodding yes, then this program is for you!

The Celebrating Seniors Film Program is a unique workshop that will bring youth, adults, and seniors together to produce short films that celebrate the rich history of Cortes Island and it's residents.

In this program you will:
* Learn how to plan, shoot, and edit a short film
* Help tell the stories of elders in your community
* Work creatively with a small group
* Have a ridiculous amount of fun!

We welcome all levels of experience.


You can also visit our website to nominate a senior to be featured in one of the six films!
