From March 5 to 30, Wapikoni Mobile will offer an audio-visual creation workshop in the Timiskaming First Nation community. Filmmaker Mentors François Laurent and Clark Ferguson will lead the training and accompany the participants with their film projects. They will be assisted by Mathieu Melançon, our youth outreach worker, who knows the community and its participants well as this is his third session in Timiskaming.
For the first time, a Filmmaker Mentor Assistant from another community will also be present in the workshop this year! Kevin Papatie of Kitcisakik, an experienced participant with Wapikoni Mobile, will be part of the team and will be able to share his knowledge and talents with members of another Anishnabe community. A great opportunity for meeting and exchange!
The Wapikoni Mobile team is much looking forward to “co-creating” with Timiskaming’s talented filmmakers, technicians and musicians!
