In the months leading up to the festival, we'll hold at least 2 workshops about Filmmaking for Social Change, which can help people get started on how to make films. These workshops will be held online, through Zoom, so people won't have to go anywhere for those.

WHO WE ARE
Hi, my name is Ema and I am passionate about ocean protection, circular economy and social justice. I believe art and storytelling can create empathy and inspire action.
Hi! I’m Ella, an avid reader who loves stories and Christmas.
I joined the Making Waves club to learn more about film-making and how I can use it to spread a message, and also because I used to have a goldfish and I wanted to help protect it’s former home, in some way. If you have a goldfish, say hi from me! I hope you have a great day :)
Hello. I'm 12 years old. I am in Year 8 at RCHK. I like reading books and sometimes drawing things. I joined this club because I want to learn more about protecting the ocean and the animals that live there.
