Reelness: Queer Youth Filmmaking

Lights. Camera. Action! Reelness provides a safe space where LGBTQ+ youth can meet, learn and create together. Participants will study several aspect of filmmaking, including: how to use a camera, editing software, boom miking, distribution and marketing on social media. By using the camera, participants can tell their stories while empowering themselves through film.

Youth ages 13-18 are invited to attend a free  two-week summer camp immersed in the film-making process, learning various roles to complete a short film project which will be screened at a special red-carpet event, as well as, the annual Twisted Arts Festival.
