SOS Summer Film Camp 2014
Donations are now up over $4,000. Thank you to all our supporters!
When the PQ called an election last spring, the Quebec Ministry of Culture was obliged to abruptly suspend a number of its funding programs, including “Film Education for Youth”. In previous years, this funding has ensured that Summer Film Camp was accessible to all families within the community.
Rooney Productions has successfully delivered Film Camp to hundreds of teen-aged participants over the last five years, and there was no question of cancelling this year. Parents’ registrations have ensured full enrollment for the sixth year in a row.
Various Film Camp “graduates” have gone on to star in Theatre Wakefield main-stage productions, done technical work on shows, enrolled into university arts programs, taken arts-related summer jobs, and served as community volunteers, including as members of our own Board!
As the administrating organization for Film Camp, Theatre Wakefield asks for your support this year until the “Film Education for Youth” funding program is re-activated. Our goal is to raise $6,000.
Don’t let politics ruin a great community program for our youth! Please take a moment to contribute what you can towards sustaining this invaluable community program.
