Across Generations VideoFest invites you to document a conversation with a wise one in your life - anyone 60+ years old. This is an opportunity to listen, learn, and to be engaged in conversation. The short video format encourages you to spend time with an elder and document their stories about the changes experienced during their lives and the wisdom they would like to share. Older people have experienced so much in their time. Capture the conversation in a short video and share with us what you hear!
