DOXA, the Vancouver Documentary Film Festival and the NFB have collaborated to bring together “CONNEXIONS 2008”. Connexions is the youth component of the DOXA film fest. OUR WORLD and the NFB were able to bring down four participants from Bella Coola that had previously participated in the workshops. DOXA helped to bring two new participants from Sechelt (Shishalh Nation) and brought in 3 mentors from the Capilano College Independent Indigenous Filmmaking Program (Greg Coyes, Justin MacGregor, Doreen Manuel) to help out with story development.
Day one of the workshop at the National Film Board's Hemlock Street Studio has already been a long haul for this group! ;)
