An evening of film from the Autism Spectrum
On Sunday, November 1, over 60 brilliant young people with autism are prepared to wow you with their filmmaking genius at Spectrum Production's 6th Annual Film Screening and Gala, to be held at the beautiful Rialto Theatre from 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. The evening will include screening from a selection of 80 films created at Spectrum Production's 2015 summer camp.
I had the pleasure of attending Spectrum Productions'
(then called Camera Roll Productions) screening two years
ago, and to this day, I can vividly remember many of the movies. One in particular that stayed with me was Robin's exploration with uncooked eggs. It was masterfully edited, and sidesplittingly funny! I'm sure everyone in attendance will fondly recall the antics that were so clearly captured on film.
Spectrum Productions is a Montreal-based creative non-profit organization devoted to supporting youth and young adults on the autism spectrum in film and media production. We had the honour of working with them when they created Inspirations' promotional video. Take a look at their work right here.
When working with the creative team of Dan TenVeen and Liam O'Rourke, we were impressed with their talent and the ease in which they communicated with people, making our 'actors' of all abilities feel comfortable and allowing them to shine. They work the same way with their filmmakers, providing them with every opportunity to succeed and explore their creativity while honing a variety of skills.
Join over 600 guests, including the filmmakers, their friends and family, members of the mile end creative community, and many distinguished guests including Senator Jim Munson, who is an advocate across Canada for individuals with an ASD, to celebrate their talents.
As Munson said, "The way in which Spectrum Productions is changing the conversation about autism and working with youth to provide them with empowering opportunities, is absolutely unique and deeply touching."
In addition to the film screenings, there will also be a silent auction.
Join Spectrum Productions for a terrific evening:
