Vivacity Arts Association is currently running a filmmaking workshops in Harare, through this project we are training youths who are interested in filmmaking. The goal is to stimulate bigger consciousness among youth and adults. The main aim of this project is to produce world class filmmakers who can compete on the international scene, inspire and empower filmmakers.
Quality and excellence is the target for this project makers and viewers, striving to deliver these results, quenching the thirst of educational entertainment that the general public has been missing. Due to lack of job creation youths end up getting involved in Prostitution, Substance Abuse, Early Child Marriages and Violence Societies. The project will make the youth responsible by putting a human face on the issues they are facing in their communities. Young people will tell stories connected to the effects of social changes that already have happened – or use their imagination to show with pictures how it is to speak out for big changes. Either way, to express reactions and share emotions is a necessary first step at the same time finding solutions. The project is a seed of a great tree of creativity in Zimbabwe as a nation through art. It is our
vision not to produce ordinary filmmakers but world class competitors in the world of films. Alleviate film production illiteracy and create a platform were every filmmaker from any background can be given a chance to purse their celestial potential. It is our calling to be the ladder and stage to every filmmaker’s dream. Broadening our wings to all corners of the country so everyone with passion can be able to pursue their drive with distance and space not being a barrier. Help us to raise $30 000 to set up a video production studio and to carry on hosting the trainings.
