Winners of the 2014 Youth Film Contest

Thanks to all the film makers, their family, and friends for joining us at Surrey Central Library on Wednesday June 11th to screen the 2014 youth film PSA’s. Daniel Baraghoush won in the junior category for his film, “Everyone can do Something.

Trio Levi Du, Lelinh Du, and Braden Batsford won in the senior category for, “Real Problems.”

Each filmmaker produces a 30 or 60 second film on the theme of “Everyone Can Make A Difference,” to raise awareness about homelessness in Surrey.

See all the film submissions here.

We also enjoyed stories from a few of the film makers. Omyma is one of the students who participated in the film making workshops delivered by Glen Chua as part of the film contest. Omyma told us how unfortunate circumstances can lead any young person toward homelessness and how it’s important to help make sure youth know there is help available to them. Our 2014 Junior category winner¬†Daniel Baraghoush, ¬†at age 12 has had lots of experience in film making already. In Glen’s film workshop he learned new more effective lighting techniques, and in the process of making his film, he learned how each of us can do something to help others in our community. Laine MacNeil, the 2013 Junior category winner inspired each film maker to continue pursuing their passion for film making saying Vancouver is a great place to be involved in the business.

The audience enjoyed an evening of great student films, inspiring stories from youth film makers and munched on tasty popcorn and theatre candy. Thanks to everyone involved for a great event.
