From September, 2014 to May, 2015, The Living Landscapes Youth Filmmaking Tour provided youth in small communities with artistic skills, technical training, professional artistic mentorship and access to video equipment to create video portraits of their lives within the remote landscapes of B.C. The films reflect a variety of styles, from documentary, to fictional narrative, to experimental forms. Through visual, narrative and sound, the youth explored stories from their local landscapes, and created projects expressing their interaction with their physical and social community through story. Each filmmaking intensive ended with it’s own community screening where the students shared and discussed their creative works with their audience. Living Landscapes creates a portrait of how British Columbian youth relate to their diverse landscapes. The finished projects are available for viewing through the Education Department’s Living Landscapes Vimeo Channel.
