Filmmaking in Schools

First Take teaches filmmaking to youth across the province.

We are so proud of this program. Our school touring program brings filmmakers into classrooms across the province to screen short documentaries made by youth, and then lead hands-on filmmaking workshops with the students. Made possible by ArtsNL and the NL Department of Education and Early Childhood Development through its Cultural Connections Strategy.

In 2017-2018 filmmakers Lian Morrison, Vickie Morgan and Devin Shears lead the workshops in schools on the Burin Peninsula and in the St. John’s area. In Labrador —schools in Goose Bay and Sheshatshiu — Glenn Gear and Lian Morrison lead the workshops. You can watch videos made as part of this program online at

We’re still completing the work from this year, but below are some films from previous years:
