Take part in a project: My Millennial Life

My Millennial Life is a new documentary film from filmmaker Maureen Judge, in camera lensassociation with TVO.

We’re looking to follow young adults in the midst of transitioning into the  ‘real world’ of jobs, money, relationships and responsibilities. My Millennial Life will aim to echo and amplify the hopes and longings of a generation; a generation wanting to make its mark on society, while learning today’s life lessons along the way.
