“MentorLink: A multilogue with leading professionals”
Filmmaking “Reconciliation” around the world on campus
Are you interested in being mentored in filmmaking, adding to the experience that you have already gained?
Do you want to make a documentary and meet students from around the world?
Are you curious about “reconciliation” in other traditions and cultures?
This July, you have an opportunity over the course of one month to meet students from other disciplines and cultures, who are as passionate as you are about filmmaking. Engage in a student-led project, which may be used during Reconciliation Week on the Iona Pacific Inter-religious Centre website. As well, your film might be shown during the academic year for the campus community and community leaders. You can use this film project on your resume/CV and LinkedIn account as a sample for future employers and graduate programs, demonstrating teamwork, critical analysis, and innovation. Create an innovative project, be mentored by professionals on and off campus, and make a difference in the world.
Reasons to get involved:
- Gain mentorship and career-building skills and opportunities
- Learn about leading-edge research on issues of social consequence
- Network with other emerging leaders on campus and beyond
Participants must have basic experience in using filmmaking equipment and creating a documentary, and be at least 18 years of age at the start of the program on July 2, 2013. You must be able to commit to the full project from July 2 to August 8, 2013, which will include one to two meetings each week, filmmaking and interviewing students, and editing the piece to the satisfaction of the whole group for a screening with community leaders.
This project is made possible through funding from the Government of Canada and the Province of British Columbia.
