Young Moviemakers is an amazing film program in Vancouver which is lightyears ahead of any other in quality.
Although Young Moviemakers was officially established in 2014, they have been running their same programs since 2004. Over the years they have taught countless students from as young as 5, who consistently returned to their programs year after year. Many of those students began to volunteer with their programs and many even moved on to becoming Young Moviemakers filmmaker staff. Others launched into acting and film careers, all thanks to inspiration which Young Moviemakers managed to ignite within them.
Young Moviemakers has resulted in countless lives being changed in a positive direction. Even when participants out grow the programs, they come back to pay it forward and give back, creating a thriving arts community. For this I believe they deserve the Community Impact Award.
