producing films on our reality
Using the skills and processes of film production as the means to bring together youth to produce films on their reality within Toronto. We work with youth age 18-29, coming from different neighborhoods working collaboratively to share ideas and produce a film project, all while developing new relationships with each other and service providers, and ultimately, increase their sense of capacity and self worth.
Here are some new films from our young people. These films are not based on any true events, but are stories that they can relate to.
Story by The Film Stars Project, Produced in 2018-19.
