Wapikoni – Native Montreal hosts the Wapikoni mobile film and music workshops
From June 12 until July 14, Native Montreal, located at 3181 Saint-Jacques Street, will host the Wapikoni film and music workshops. Members of the Montreal Indigenous community are invited to attend the free creative workshops. An open house day is set for June 13 between 2:00 P.M. and 6:00 P.M.
Accompanied by two filmmaker-mentors, an Indigenous assistant filmmaker-mentor and a local coordinator, participants are trained in screenwriting, directing and in the numerous technical aspects of filmmaking (camera, sound recording and editing) with cutting edge equipment. Each participant benefits from mentoring adapted to his or her experience and pace of learning for a period of four weeks.
Media representatives are invited to meet Wapikoni team members and participants to learn more about filmmaking and discover which theme the youth chose this year.
A free short films screening will take place on July 13. The time and place will be announced shortly. Find out more by visiting Native Montreal during the workshop or by contacting the Wapikoni.
