Star in a “home movie” featuring BC residents’ relationship with, and hopes and fears about, the current and future state of BC’s economy. Share your story and be part of We Are BC - a crowd-sourced, user-generated video portrait on our province’s economic life.
Take out your smart phones, tablets, computers and cameras and record your own personal and candid 30-second video clips! The project seeks authentic voices, so no professional filmmaking skills are required. You could appear in the We Are BC film, win a $500 Peoples’ Choice award and have your video showcased on a We Are BC legacy website.
SFU Public Square will feature the We Are BC film in a premiere screening at the Orpheum Theatre on October 3, 2013 to kick-off a talk by Nobel Prize economist Joseph Stiglitz. This event is part of SFU Public Square’s 2013 Community Summit, Charting BC’s Economic Future. The event is free and open to the public, and will also be webcast live by The Vancouver Sun.
Even if your submission is not selected for the final film, all eligible video submissions received will be showcased on a We Are BC legacy website.
Submit your video by 11:59 p.m., Monday, September 2, 2013.
