The 7th LDF Seniors Workshop is an exciting opportunity for adults 55+ to meet safely online and onsite, get comfortable behind the camera, and shine a light on an important issue affecting our community and beyond!
Participants will learn filmmaking techniques from a professional mentor through discussions, research, hands on experience with production equipment, and interviews with stakeholders and experts.
This year’s Seniors Program tackles an important issue for a growing number of Canadian seniors as well the Canadian population as a whole. Up to twelve participants will explore the challenges of maintaining mental health through ageing.
The group will undertake the production of a mid-length documentary that they create together. Workshop participants will meet each week to learn about video production including story structure, interview techniques, lighting, sound, video recording, editing, and more! The group will then embark on the filmmaking process by engaging with subjects and experts connected to mental health. The finished film will premiere at the 9th Lunenburg Doc Fest in September 2022.
This is a free program for adults 55+. Limited spots available: Preference will be given to applicants who have not participated in Lunenburg Doc Fest’s Seniors Program to date.
