Call for Submissions: If You Ask Me - Youth Filmmaking Program

Hosted by Workman Arts

If You Ask Me (IYAM) is a free program that supports emerging filmmakers with mental health and/or addiction experiences to develop a short film in the company of like-minded peers in a supportive environment. Over the summer, a small group of filmmakers will be selected to engage in workshops led by industry professionals and receive mentorship from IYAM alumni. Workshop topics include: developing a script, production, directing, editing, sound, distribution, and film festivals. Filmmakers will have an opportunity to screen their work at the 29th Annual Rendezvous with Madness Festival.

IYAM will run virtually for a second year! Filmmakers are expected to take a self-directed approach to create their own films and will receive support and strategies throughout the program. All genres of film are welcome such as documentary, experimental, fiction, and animation; all devices for filmmaking are welcome whether it is phone, tablet, or any variety of camera!
