If You Ask Me

Rendezvous With Madness Festival

Open captioned.

In 2017, Rendezvous with Madness (RWM) and CAMH’s National Youth Action Committee (NYAC) partnered to create ‘If You Ask Me’ (IYAM) – a compilation of short films created by youth from across Canada exploring their own experiences with mental health and/or addiction issues.

This year, NYAC and RWM commissioned 15 of the youth filmmakers to create new IYAM films! Participating in a series of workshops with RWM mentors Nadine Espinoza, Rick Miller and Maria-Saroja Ponnambalam and facilitated by youth mentor Erum Khan, the filmmakers supported each other through the creative process by pushing themselves to share their stories and answer important questions.
