"About: The Film Stars Project, is a youth-led non-profit organization that works with youth coming from traumatized neighborhoods that are often forgotten and misrepresented, and teaching them the steps of filmmaking and having them produce films on their reality so people can get a better understanding of their world and their struggles. The project gives young people the opportunity to learn the various skills required to produce film, either documentary, newscast, or feature film. It also provides skill training in photography and make-up for film and photography. More at https://www.thefilmstarsproject.org/news/
Photography component: Educating the public on the different issues that young people are facing, and the challenges that are within the neighbourhoods of Toronto is a must. By using the medium of Photography, the goals are two-fold; to promote pride and self-awareness amongst participants, as well as to create public awareness about the impact these experiences have had on and in the lives of these youth, including access to meaningful employment and establishing life goals. We created an Awareness & Impact Campaign that will give young people the chance to tell their personal stories of the effect of stereotypes they have each experienced within and out of their community.
