Documentary Workshop

Workshops Activities

Documentaries have the power to challenge people’s thoughts and change their opinion and actions for the better. In this workshop, our filmmakers work closely with the group to help them find structure to their subject of choice in a way that can be presented in documentary form. Giving them the power to lift their thoughts and feelings right off the page into the realm of film.

Imagine taking a school project, a personal cause, or championing a subject you want people outside of your group to understand better and making it visually captivating. Our documentary workshop allow participants to shine a light on the things that interest them and turn that into a film that can then be seen by a wider audience. From your favourite hobby, to something going on in the outside world, this workshop has the flexibility to put your groups thoughts and feelings onto the screen.
