  • Queer Youth Digital Video Project
    Raw energy, ideas and talent UNITE! Inside Out and Charles Street Video are proud to present the eighth annual Queer Youth Digital Video Project. This year, a group of quick-witted youth under the age of 25 came together to learn the process of short, no-budget videomaking from experienced Toronto-based video artists. After months of preparation, these new works are being introduced to the world, bringing you the freshest voices from the heart of our growing communities.

    About QYDVP
    Initiated in 1998, the Queer Youth Digital Video Project chooses six to eight youth to make a short video for the Inside Out Toronto Lesbian and Gay Film and Video Festival. Participants are guided through a series of workshops by Inside Out and Charles Street Video that teaches them everything from development to editing to final post-production all in a queer-positive environment. The final videos are premiered at the Inside Out Festival in May.
