What a day! Shooting for @motheringinthemovement and so many serendipitous moments happened in between! After our 3rd story window experience (last post) the whole crew hopped on a float (Thanks @tdsb.on.ca ), I had to snap a pic with my schoolโ€™s Superintendent and his beautiful family, bumped into former student @rk7studios running his own security outfit, then snapped a pic with friend and fellow teacher Renee, who was marching with Amnesty International...PHEW!! But THE best part of the day was having @cashew23 by my side helping me make my filmmaking dreams come true. Happy Pride babes. Youโ€™re the only PA Iโ€™ll ever need ๐Ÿ˜˜๐ŸŽฅ๐ŸŒˆ #youaremorethancraftservicestome ๐Ÿ˜‰ #happypride #torontopride #pridetoronto #documentary #docfilm #womeninfilm #blackwomeninfilm #directher #tdsb #teachersofinstagram #teacherfilmmaker #womenmakemovies

Had great news today. One of my film students was awarded $25,000 scholarship from Taco Bell for her personal video essay about her passion for film. Proud teacher moment for a future director.

Sometimes the only way to get through a stack of marking ("grading" for my US peeps) is to change up your surroundings. Happens to be the spot where many a film production meeting has taken place ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿพโ€๐Ÿซ๐ŸŽฅ #teacherteacher #teacherfilmmaker #workpassion #weekendvibes #teachersofinstagram #indiefilm #womeninfilm #blackwomeninfilm #toronto

I could get used to this, Ella! ๐Ÿ˜‰ I am so filled up after speaking with artists (particularly women creators) about their work. Thanks @ellacoopercreates for the opportunity to rep @bwfcanada and moderate the talkback @caribbeantales last night (YES! After Curriculum/Meet the Teacher night ๐Ÿค“)All the films screened last night used superb storytelling to illuminate and celebrate who we are as sons and daughters of the Diaspora. Brava and thank you! ๐Ÿ“ท @silafaen #blackwomenfilmcanada #bwfcanada #womeninfilm #blackwomeninfilm #blackfilm #caribbeanfilm #caribbeantales #ctff2017 #toronto #filmscene #talkback #qanda #moderator #moonlighting #teacherfilmmaker #indiefilm #directher #canadianfilm #torontoartists #storytellers

"Mothering in the Movement" film was conceived from a simple desire to document the undervalued work of women (particularly mothers and those who mother) at the centre of social justice movements. It has blossomed into a film that yearns to do so much more. Mothering has taken on a life of its own and like any new creation, it will stretch, expand, and take up space. It will challenge, interrogate, and move its viewers to consider the implications of ideologies and practices that don't centre women and children. I no longer have any control over the life force of this film. All I can do is trust my instincts and act as a midwife to the creative process. I wouldn't want it any other way. {๐Ÿ“ท @quazimottoonwx } * * * #motheringinthemovement #mothering #mothers #mothersaretherevolution #revolutionarymothers #community #momlife #moms #activists #motherhood #momactivist #motheractivist #womeninfilm #blackwomeninfilm #blackwomen #tattoos #sistaink #blackink #blackmoms #indiefilm #nfb #documentaryfilm #docs #blackwomendirectors #solongsummer #backtoschool #teacherfilmmaker #brooklyn #brooklynphotographer

"Hi Ms Townshend, remember me?" There's no other way to say it, when a student flies, a teacher's heart soars. Another former student, Leandro. Now a 3rd year film/video student at Ryerson (and of course I remember you!) #cfc #canadianfilmcentre #toronto #tiff16 #dramateacher #teacherfilmmaker #imakemoviestoo #proudmoment #fullcircle #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram
