Event description

Description

If You Ask Me (IYAM) is a nation-wide film project created by Toronto’s Rendezvous with Madness Film Festival. In the spirit of Workman Arts, Rendezvous's parent organisation and a pioneer in providing creative opportunities for people with mental health experiences, IYAM is a collection of videos made by young Canadians skillfully edited into a feature film who have something to share about their lives: the experience of living with mental health issues. How individual are these stories? As different as the people who created them, but united by an inspirational determination to tell others about how they live.

Please join us for the world premiere of this brand new omnibus film made by upwards of 20 young Canadians sharing their lived experiences with the world!

Background: the If You Ask Me project asked young people (13 – 30) from across Canada to create short videos about their own experience with mental health.

All contributors were asked these key questions:
What aspects of your mental health make you you?
What superpowers do you have because of your mental health experiences?

Project made possible thanks to generous support from the J.P. Bickell Foundation

Made in collaboration with NYAC – National Youth Advisory Council at CAMH.

*As with all screenings, limited Pay What You Can tickets are available at the door for young persons, seniors, under employed or persons on fixed incomes. No one turned away for lack of funds!

Screening will be followed by discussion with many of the contributing videomakers!

Co-presented with NYAC National Youth Advisory Council at CAMH, OCADU Health & Wellness Centre, Art With Impact and Toronto Youth Shorts Film Festival.
