As students, we began brainstorming on possible ways that the program might be saved from being ultimately cut.
One idea was to throw together a little video, showcasing the types of things that we do, and the ways in which we are learning about documentary film-making.

About the program: "The Documentary Production Program provides its students with the opportunity to explore what is important to them, and to create films with great meaning. The program inspires its students to create, learn and excel within this ever-changing medium. The program has great potential and has made wonderful strives in previous years, including, but not limited to, partnerships with the Wakefield International Film Festival, our own DocFest, and yearly visits to HotDocs."
