Film Forward

Training Course

8-15 March 2023 | Latvia

Film Forward aims to empower NGOs and youth workers by providing them with essential video making skills for creating better designed videos in order to promote their work, attract partners, volunteers and generate impact on social issues.

For all of us who are part of not-for-profit and social initiatives, it is always tricky to spread our message compared to for-profit initiatives. We are aware or we should become aware that branding and namely the video presence of our initiative and cause is the second thing we have to build (after our website). Nowadays technology allows us to create video productions without expensive equipment. Smartphones, laptops, and other low-cost gadgets can offer high-quality video productions.

Even more, visual media is one of the main forms of activism for advocating for LGBTQIA+ human rights and for many of the LGBT+ NGO’s and youth workers, volunteers and activists who work with the LGBTQIA+ community, there is a lack of competencies, capacity and firsthand experience working with video.

For these reasons, Active Rainbow in collaboration with its partners are inviting you to Film Forward project. It is a 2-phase project where you will have the chance to learn how to build a social promotional video of your organization and/or initiative with low-cost equipment as well as to learn and experiment together with 23 more people, how to use video by creating yourselves a video for a Latvian- based non-profit initiative.

Film Forward is the proud 9th edition of this specific methodology, and it makes its difference  and unique entry, as it aims to equip specifically LGBTQIA+ and allies youth workers with competencies to create social impact through videomaking.
