75 SHOTS was conceived by film poet, Karin Hazé. On April 26, 2016, in the Chambers of the Supreme Court of Jamaica, she bared witness to submissions given against the anti-sodomy archaic law of 1861 being rejected by the government. She immediately took action and demonstrated at Emancipation Parc in downtown Kingston, where she protested for LGBTQ+ rights.
She uses her activism to teach courageous participants basic filmmaking skills for free. Her unique program is designed for LGBTQ+ people living in 1 of the 70 countries in the World, where it’s still illegal to be gay.
One shot at a time, successful participants will develop their imagination, creativity, self-esteem and employability skills as they receive theoretic & hands-on smartphone filmmaking training.
75 SHOTS is currently offering free-of-charge online smartphone film training to motivated candidates. No experience required. Your safety and education come first.
