WFI Programming Promotion in Wemindji
From the 11th to the 13th of March, WFI staff was in attendance at the Inspire Hope Youth Conference in Wemindji, Quebec. A table with WFI promotional material and information for youth enabled connections and discussions on upcoming programming. Many of the youth were very interested in the filmmaking process, as well as a career in the film industry. WFI Founder Dr. Shirley Cheechoo was approached by a couple of individuals from the area who attended her film workshops in years past, and their personal updates included employment within the film industry. The impact WFI has had on the development of youth in these remote, and often underserved communities is truly remarkable.
