Age is More Virtual Film Program (Reel Youth)

“The Age is More Virtual Film Program was the first ever youth and seniors virtual film program. Young filmmakers from across Canada worked with seniors in Revera Retirement Residences to create a poem based on the impactful moments in their lives, and the seniors used iPads to record footage to accompany it.

These videos are a tribute to the ageless spirit of older Canadians, to life-long learning, and to building relationships between different generations.”
