From March 12th-March 16th, join reachAbility at their offices (3845 Joseph Howe Drive, Suite 201, Halifax, NS) for their FILM-U March Break Camp. This program is funded by Nova Scotia Department of Community Services and is offered to the community at no cost. FILM-U is open to young people, ages 15-20, who are facing barriers. All people from all communities are welcome and encouraged to register. This new and exciting opportunity offers diverse partnerships and provides a chance to work with industry leaders. The program is accepting 12 individuals to learn the art of filmmaking. As space is limited, please register today at
The camp will give the participants real experience with real film industry professionals and a chance to make their very own film. Film is an incredible tool and we want to empower young people to use it to tell stories that matters to them. FILM-U is also partnering with the Bluenose-Ability Film Festival, giving the participants an opportunity to screen their films at BAFF 2018.
reachAbility is very excited to announce that the camp will be facilitated by Taylor Olson and Koumbie, two local and extremely talented filmmakers. Coming from an acting background, they have collaborated in bringing a number of film projects to the big screen, including “Hustle and Heart” (2016) (Winner-CBC Short Film Face Off, Best Atlantic Short-Atlantic Film Festival) & “Ariyah & Tristan’s Inevitable Break Up”(2016). At BAFF 2017, the two won awards for their films "Perfectly Sane”(2017) & “Horizontal Concavity”(2017). Together, Taylor and Koumbie are committed to creating a Canadian culture of kindness, inclusion and courage and reachAbility is ecstatic to partner with them.
