Video Camp for Girls+

August 24, 2018. 6:00PM.

SAW Video and Knot Project Space are so proud to present a screening of short videos produced through our Video Camp for Girls+! This event is open to camp participants and their families/friends and the community at large. 

The Video Camp for Girls+ has taken place over the summer in association with Ottawa’s Girls+ Skate 613, which meets for skate sessions once a week on Thursday evenings throughout the summer months. The camp provides an opportunity for training in basic video production and video editing for participants aged 13-17. 

Under the direction of female instructors and mentors who are professionals in the audio/visual production field, campers have been given the opportunity to conceive, shoot, direct, and edit, short videos about skateboarding. Like skateboarding culture, Film and Video-making often tend to be male-dominated fields, and this program has sought to encourage young women, girls, and femme identified youth, to learn about film, and to consider it as a potential career choice. Let's celebrate the breaking of barriers and girls+ filmmakers and skaters! 

This program would not be possible without the generous and continued support of the Ontario Trillium Foundation.
