Inside Out LGBT Film Festival says
Mentoring the Next Generation of LGBT Filmmakers


The Project provides a unique opportunity to learn video production from professional artists and editors, using state-of-the-art high-definition cameras and the latest editing technology – all in a queer positive group environment. Inside Out and Charles Street Video guide participants through a series of workshops in all aspects of video production – from script development to camera operation to editing and final post-production.

Four short films will be produced. You can apply as a group (4 maximum) or as an individual. Honorariums will be paid to filmmakers and an artist fee for the screening of their film.

Eligibility Requirements:

· Applicants must be between the ages of 18 and 24 years old or 55 years or older
· Applicants must have little to no experience making films or videos
· Selected participants must be able to commit to 11 hours/week (approximately 100 hours total) spread over the fall and winter months starting in November 2015.

Deadline for proposals: September 21, 2015
