Next week, July 16-27, aGLIFF and ASoF is hosting a FREE summer camp for queer youths ages 14-19 to learn the ins and outs of filmmaking. the Austin Gay & Lesbian Film Festival is dedicated to impacting the lives of the LGBT community at all ages and with this event showcases it’s support for children who desire community and reinforcement that sexual orientation is not a choice but something you are born with.
More about the event:
In collaboration with Out Youth and the Austin School of Film, aGLIFF hosts the Queer Youth Media Project (QYMP), which offers youth not only the entire movie making process, but also introduces students to theater, acting, casting calls, how to enter films into festivals, market their films and find distribution as well as screening at the 25th Annual Austin Gay & Lesbian International Film Festival Program.
We want to empower you with a platform for self expression as well as a highly instructive curriculum that teaches you the entirety of the filmmaking process. Your creativity and execution have the unique opportunity to be showcased in front of an industry audience.
How It Works:
Over the course of a two week summer program: July 16-27, 9:00am to 1:30pm, our students will immerse themselves, along with our instructors, into the craft of filmmaking!
You have creative control of depicting the current state of life for queer and ally youth while learning technical skills to communicate your stories. Tell your story through film, make new connections, and be a part of defining your future!
