Douglas College to screen documentary at New Westminster campus Nov. 26



A pair of University of Victoria graduates turned filmmakers will be on hand Nov. 26 for a screening of their docuseries at Douglas College.

Denis Luchyshyn and Clinton Nellist will present the first part of their three-part series, Road to Employment, which focuses on the struggles of employment for youth in Canada.

The 5pm screening will take place at the New Westminster campus on the Omnivex screen in the concourse and will be followed by a question-and-answer period with the recent UVIC grads.
Part one, titled Engage, is focused on inspiring action and explores “actionable advice on the topics of networking and persistence.” 

The 27-minute film –  crowdfunded through Kickstarter – also reveals what drove Luchyshyn and Nellist to drive across Canada and film their experience as they searched for answers to how youth can build relevant and sustainable careers.

The event is free and open to the public. Popcorn will also be served.
