About

 12 REASONS TO BACK 12 ANGRY FILMMAKERS

  • 12 – We are more than 12! There are several projects on the go involving actors, cinematographers, sound engineers, writers, directors… a real menagerie of creatives.
  • 11 – Shorts are quick and dirty. In a short period of time, we tell a complete story, and we do it well.
  • 10 – Short films can be budget friendly! If we have the right equipment, the artists can take care of the rest.
  • 9 – Contributing to the 12 Angry Filmmakers allows a diverse group of people to express themselves – we represent the diversity of your community in filmmaking.
  • 8 – We want to tell the stories hidden in your community. Our films will be made here by your friendly neighbourhood artists.  
  • 7 – Supporting artists contributes to the economic well being of a city. Film is included in this! With the buzz around this collective, we will draw energy into the communities we support in our films.
  • 6 – We want to give you a reason for a great night out on the town. These films will be promoted and shown throughout the region, with some hopefully featured in GRFF!
  • 5 – We want to change your reality. Not only do we want to make your city a more interesting and lively place, we sometimes want to give you something to think about. Films let you daydream… or nightmare as the case may be.
  • 4 – Film is alive in Waterloo Region. The money you give will build on an existing and vibrant art form through purchase of equipment, and contributions to keeping the form alive.
  • 3 – Your contribution will keep a group of angry filmmakers off the street! But seriously – what a great way of adding another cultural activity to the city. For a few dollars, we get an open filmmaking collective, and films!
  • 2 – Great art makes for great cities. It’s not just economy, it’s also about identity. Artsy cities are great to visit, but also great to have as your home.
  • 1 – The best reason to back this project is that we aren’t really that angry. By backing this, you are backing a large group of artists who are passionate about transforming realities through stories.

The plan is to provide independent filmmakers the chance to make their projects AND pay actors, musicians and crew. We are thrilled about this incredible opportunity to grow a strong film community in our Region of Waterloo;  With your backing, we can support artists to create these exciting important, local films.

The 12 Angry Filmmaker projects will explore stories about gender, cultural identity, mental health and family, to name a few.

THE RUNAWAY, WAS PRODUCED IN COLLABORATION WITH THE MULTICULTURAL CINEMA CLUB, BRENDEN SOLOMON, GARY KIRKHAM AND DUNCAN FINNIGAN.  

INCLUSION NOMINATION - Duncan Finnigan, created work that featured people supported by Extend-A-Family. In these videos, people are portrayed in a manner that does not attempt to evoke sympathy or treat people with "labels" as helpless. To the contrary, his work celebrates people of all abilities. This creative use of film has allowed the general public to gain an insight into those served by EAF without being preachy. Further, those who have worked with Duncan have felt as though they were treated as equals rather than mere subjects in his films. With such an inclusive attitude he is able to use media as a way in which to promote equality for all. ​MATT REIHL, EXTEND-A-FAMILY

Risks and challenges

12 Angry Filmmakers meet on the 13th of every month to keep projects on schedule. As a film collective, we aim to grow a micro media & film culture in the Waterloo Region.

The challenge we face is maintaining momentum with writers, cast and crew on several projects simultaneously. So, to compliment the movie making, we will run workshops around topics such as; acting techniques, story creation and screenplay revision. We will also invite professionals from the industry to inspire the group on an ongoing basis. As a group, we support each other in all aspects of film creation, for example, gatherings dedicated to improvising eachothers' scripts and brainstorming creative solutions to budget constraints. 12 Angry Filmmakers is a collective of eager and encouraging members who work through projects as professionals and friends.
