Building Safe Spaces and Small Craft
Professor, mentor, advocate, sailor. Dr. Shane Theunissen of Mount Saint Vincent University’s Department of Child & Youth Study is all those things. And now he can add “filmmaker” to the list, as can his collaborator Nick Jones of the Mount’s Digital Media Zone.
It was announced July 9, that the duo’s video telling the story of Shane’s boat building workshop – a program co-hosted by the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic and connecting youth in care with Mount Child & Youth Study students – has been named an official selection of the “300 Seconds Short Film Festival”.
The “300 Seconds Short Film Festival” celebrates micro-short films (of five minutes or less) from around the world and features the work of filmmakers of all levels. A live screening and awards event will take place in Toronto on July 23.
