Do you want to make a movie? Come join us for a week-long Documentary Filmmaking workshop at GNS, led by a professional documentary filmmaker. We’ll have a jam-packed week watching docs, discussing docs, learning how to make docs, and creating your own docs. You’ll learn about producing, directing, writing, filming and editing, and finally, using footage which you’ll shoot during this class, you’ll create your own documentary film to showcase in a mini film festival.

The instructor, Suzanne Chisholm, is an award-winning documentary producer and director whose work has been broadcast on CBC, PBS, BBC, NHK, and worldwide on National Geographic.
