Filmbuilding: Co-Creative filmmaking across distances and differences

Read here about our full webinar series on Youth Media.Filmbuilding Chart

In the second webinar, Tom Flint will survey an educational initiative called Filmbuilding which explores the co-creative aspects of movie-making for meaningful bridge-building in a time of growing uncertainty. Utilizing readily accessible technologies, participants come together across distances and differences to create film projects that borrow from each other's lived experiences, and push boundaries in terms of media-based community-building, civic engagement, cross-cultural exchange and more. After two distinct Filmbuilding programs are discussed, attendees will learn about further applications and opportunities to initiate similar programs in their own contexts.
