Ontario Tech acknowledges the lands and people of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation.

We are thankful to be welcome on these lands in friendship. The lands we are situated on are covered by the Williams Treaties and are the traditional territory of the Mississaugas, a branch of the greater Anishinaabeg Nation, including Algonquin, Ojibway, Odawa and Pottawatomi. These lands remain home to many Indigenous nations and peoples.

We acknowledge this land out of respect for the Indigenous nations who have cared for Turtle Island, also called North America, from before the arrival of settler peoples until this day. Most importantly, we acknowledge that the history of these lands has been tainted by poor treatment and a lack of friendship with the First Nations who call them home.

This history is something we are all affected by because we are all treaty people in Canada. We all have a shared history to reflect on, and each of us is affected by this history in different ways. Our past defines our present, but if we move forward as friends and allies, then it does not have to define our future.

Work in a Movie

Movies. We all love them. They move us, they influence us, they inspire us, and they come in all forms. Not to mention, there's bingeable TV shows, mind-blowing music videos and commercials that make us inexplicably cry every time we see them (looking at you Sarah McLaughlan's 2007 PSA for animal cruelty). Filmmaking - no matter what the format, genre or style - is a practice in storytelling. It's a modern way to communicate and pushes the bounds of creativity. Whether you love watching TikToks, Netflix specials, or the next Christopher Nolan banger, there's something for everybody.

Come and learn about what it takes to make your own stories through film. You will learn how to develop ideas, experiment and explore film style, learn how to prep and execute a shoot of your own over a one week intensive, and you will get a primer on what the current film industry looks like. Take the plunge and experience this five day film challenge. It's an art, it's a science, it's business - it's a whole lot of things. But ultimately, it's showbiz, baby!
