The Story to Screen: Youth Digital Storytelling Project  

Story to Screen showcases the unique viewpoints and perspectives of local youth. Exploring narrative, storytelling and the documentary through the lens of a still or video camera, these thoughtful student projects were developed over a six-week program of hands-on workshops with creative industry professionals, where students had the opportunity to explore what is important to them as individuals. Working closely with their mentors, each student was guided to create, edit and share a powerful story on what it means to be an individual and part of a community, considering the many ways that we might be shaped by our experiences, possessions, education, neighbourhood, the media, technology, family, cultural background, appearance or our relationship to the landscape or environment.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the students for their wonderful creativity and dedication to the project, our talented mentors at Contact Sheet, and Digital Storytellers as well as Poster Candy for their generous support.
