We had a blast teaching the workshop at the Kitchener Public Library, and were incredibly honoured that the event was featured in The Record, The Kitchener Post, Make it Kitchener, and SPOKE magazine. Our goal has always been to encourage emerging filmmakers to work within their means – especially with a micro-budget – but we place an equal amount of importance on community engage, and so we couldn’t be more excited at the attendance and level of interest for more films in the region.

Thank you to everyone who came out, and thanks again to all the writers for taking the time to cover the event. Please check out the links below for more details 🙂
