Reaching Out: Short films from Vancouver, Coquitlam, and Burnaby

Reaching Out empowered young activists in Metro Vancouver Pride Clubs and Gender & Sexuality Alliances (GSAs) to produce and share videos aimed at making change and building networks of allies within their local communities. This project engaged youths in Vancouver, Coquitlam, and Burnaby, providing them with extensive professional support and mentorship from filmmakers and educators. Through this project, young people created videos to communicate important social justice messages, and to engage their school and communities.

Reaching Out, presented by The Cinematheque and Out In School, was created in partnership with the School District of Vancouver, Coquitlam, and Burnaby. The project was generously supported by Coast Capital Savings and the TELUS Vancouver Community Board.
