The Youth Media Project teaches skills in video production for young adults under 30.

Young filmmakers present Reelization

Reelization, a cinematic event created by young aspiring filmmakers in the basement of the Comox Valley Art Gallery, will screen on Friday, Dec. 15, 7 p.m. at the Rotary Hall in the Florence Filberg Centre.

The event is free and everyone is welcome. It features the work of participants in CVAG’s Youth Media Project.

“The Youth Media Project is this unique space where youth have the opportunity to connect not just with each other, but with many folks who are creating positive change in our community,” said team leader Krista Tupper.

Reelization will present independent short films made by each participant, plus films that participants created with a local community organization or business such as the Boys and Girls Club, the Toy Library, Habitat for Humanity, the Cumberland Forest Society, the LINC Youth Centre and more.

“I really enjoy this program because it got me in contact with like-minded individuals and gave me all the skills I need to make a film,” said Frank Goudie, a participant of the program.

The Youth Media Project teaches skills in video production for young adults under 30. This is the program’s fifth year running and it will continue again in January.

CVAG is currently accepting applications for next year’s program. To apply send an email to Krista.cvagymp@gmail.com or drop off an application to CVAG, at 580 Duncan Ave. The deadline to apply is Jan. 5, 2018.

To be eligible, participants must be between the ages of 16 and 30 and have an interest in art and video. They cannot be working full time or attending school full time, or in receipt of Employment Insurance. Participants will be paid minimum wage for 30 hours a week. For more details call 250-338-6211.
