Animating History

A DAY-LONG WORKSHOP IN FILM ANIMATION!

Animating History is an innovative hands-on workshop that connects media literacy and storytelling through the creative exploration of BC history. During the workshop, youth create a 1-2 minute animated film retelling a piece of local history. Students work cooperatively with a professional animator and museum interpreter to experience BC history and the stop-motion animation process.

This project-based learning experience integrates all areas of the curriculum, helping students to develop skills in such areas as teamwork, communication, and cooperation. Find out more!

Youth Jury Program

If you love watching movies, then we need you!

The Youth Jury Program aims to foster a deeper appreciation for independent film from Canada and around the globe. This innovative program begins in January with a free workshop in film criticism. A challenging and interactive experience, students sharpen their critical eye, gain appreciation for different genres, and learn what makes a film great.

In February 2019, two youth juries of up to twenty-five young people are formed to evaluate short films in their age category and to choose the award winners. During the Festival, these juries attend the feature films in competition and choose the award winners. Click here to find out more!
