World Film Collective facilitates youth film making

More from the social innovation files: World Film Collective “…teaches filmmaking to disadvantaged young people around the globe, using equipment that is sustainable, accessible and affordable, providing them a rare chance to be forerunners of the current digital communications revolution.”

The group offers workshops to young (10 – 25 year-old) participants in their communities and at no cost. The entire programme takes three years to complete. Films are distributed using social media channels, the web site, and are entered into film festivals.

What do I have in common with kids? Soccer! It took me all of 27 seconds to find “Township Tournament”, 2:08 minutes on an alternative World Cup competition that took place in the townships around Cape Town.

“I felt like I was in front of God.”
– Answer to the question “How did you feel when you scored those goals?”, asked of a participant in the tournament, “Township Tournament“, World Film Collective

Highly recommended, but beware: it’s dead simple to lose hours on their YouTube channel.
