Make a film, make a difference
Angus Glen Older Adults Club (AGOAC) Filmmaking Group has received funding under the Government of Canada's New Horizons for Seniors Program for our project “Lights, Camera, Stop Elder Abuse” to produce a film to help raise awareness of elder abuse.
"Stop IT!" is a short film about a devoted daughter invites her elderly mother to move in during recovery from an ankle injury, but when she notices her mother's odd behaviour, she becomes determined to protect her mother from potential scams by taking control of her mother's lifestyle.
This federal grants and contributions program
supports projects that are led or inspired by
seniors who are making a difference in the
lives of others in their communities.
In addition to raising awareness of elder abuse, we hope to promote volunteerism among seniors to participate in the process of planning, creating and producing this short film.
This project is led by Thomas Yee who has over 30 years experience in the film and TV industry. Participants will be mostly volunteers. The project is opened to all ethnic groups living in Ontario. However, most of the activities will take place within the GTA and York Region. Completion date of this project is March, 2023.
