Afternoon Filmmaking Workshop: Dreams, Gestures, and Memoir – $20/$55 (8 sessions – for age 55+)

We are excited to announce this inaugural weekday afternoon workshop for older adults. The workshop is open to students of all levels, with no experience necessary.

Participants will create short films about dreams and memories in this playful and experimental video workshop for older adults (ages 55+). Participants will work individually and collaboratively to conduct interviews, record and edit sound and video, and learn technical skills while exploring the artistic potential of free association, repetition, lighting, and layering. The instructor will guide students of all levels in using digital cameras, audio recorders, iPads, and Adobe Premiere editing software. The resulting short films may question the line between dream and memory or lead to a narrative story. The workshop will end with a screening and celebration of the finished work. No experience is necessary, beginners are welcome! All equipment provided. Space is limited to 8 participants.

Register here or contact Caroline at or (716) 884-7172 with any questions!
