youth extreme sports film festival
I am looking to put on a youth extreme sports film festival in mid June. Many student film festivals are held in B.C, and none have an extreme sports category. I discovered that while working with kids, the majority of them took an interest in the film industry because it was a way to pursue a great career opportunity while at the same time as still being able to take an active interest in their favorite sport. I truly feel that this is something that should be highly encouraged. I would like the festival to be for high school kids, but also young adults from 19 to 21. This would not only allow the opportunity for young filmmakers to show there work, but it would also allow for the opportunity to intrigue and inspire the up and coming generations looking to get involved.
The plan is to hold the festival in Tofino, have professional filmmakers from B.C. teach the workshops, and have pro athletes involved in the kid
