We all have important stories to tell. In the media, we often don’t see stories of LGBTQAI2S+ folks that accurately reflect our lives. Making a Scene is an opportunity to break down those stereotypes, flip the scripts, and and re-write the characters. This filmmaking program is for LGBTQAI2S+ youth to write their story, shoot it, and put it on screen for everyone to watch!

From July 9th – 14th, participants will be immersed film-making, editing and story-telling to collaboratively create their own short films in a fun environment with a community of teens and mentors just like them!

You would be perfect for this project if:

– you are between the ages of 13-19
– you identify on the LGBTQ+ spectrum
– you feel you have a story to share
– you have an interest in learning film/editing/storytelling

Think this is right for you? Still not sure?
