ONLINE COURSES AND FACEBOOK PAGE AVAILABILITY STARTS ON: OCTOBER 4, 2021
ONLINE COURSES AVAILABLE UNTIL: DECEMBER 20, 2021
Cinema Academy is offering organizations working with the youth the opportunity to register their young people aged 9 to 30 access to FREE and playful filmmaking courses throughout the whole autumn! The curriculum consists of 8 classes which can be done at any pace, and will be available to 1000 people across Canada, both in French and English. The course will be available from October to December 2021 and should correspond to approximately one 3-hour class per week.
On top of that, a Facebook page will be open to all students so they can ask questions and share comments with our coaches and other students.
Also, the organizations who so desire will have the opportunity to register their youth to the Social Engagement Challenge and have a chance to win cool prizes. In order to participate, the students will have to complete the course and, with the help of the new skills learned, make a short (2-4 min.) video showcasing a socially engaged action they are doing. The action’s social impacts can range from communitarian, human or environmental to something more professionnal- or personal-oriented ( volunteering for a friend, for example).
The videos can then be sent to Cinema Academy at firstname.lastname@example.org via a website called WeTransfer. We will publish them once they are approved by our team, and a jury will select the three winners based on the quality of the production of the video and the actions showcased in them.
Videos must be submitted before February 1, 2022.
Winners will be announced on March 1, 2022.
A $1000 prize will be given to the organization having produced the best video.
A $750 prize will be given to the organization having showcased the action with the highest impact.
A $750 prize will be given to the organization whose videos will have received the most exposure in the context of the challenge.
