In Kitchener, we build great places. The Love My Hood vision encourages residents to take the lead in shaping their neighbourhood, with support from the city. Residents choose the projects that matter most to them and decide how to shape the future of their neighbourhood. After all, the best neighbourhoods are made by the people who live in them.
Award-winning short films will light up September evenings in downtown Kitchener. The Cube, high atop the Berlin Tower at Kitchener city hall, will feature projections of the winning videos in the city's 2012 Youth Video Contest.
39 young filmmakers between the ages of 12 and 25 submitted original, short, silent videos, film and animations. The contest engages youth in creating public art, using tools they may already be familiar with, and showcases the Cube as a digital art gallery in the downtown. While the majority of contest submissions were local, entries came from across the province, including Belleville and Toronto.
