WATCH: Bullied Outsiders Band Together in Touching Short Film

By Jase Peeples

Silver Creek tells the story of a group of young outsiders who are bullied in their small town yet find solace in each other's company and together discover the magic of imagination and creativity.

In addition to sending a powerful antibullying message, the makers of Silver Creek hope the short film will encourage others to make a difference in young people’s lives by clicking the “tip” button embedded on the film's Vimeo page and make a donation which will benefit LGBTQ youth charities the Trevor Project and Rainbow Resource Centre.

Filmed in 2012, more than 2,600 kilometers from Vancouver, Canada, to the village of Angusville, Silver Creek was created in the same spirit as the film’s message. “We cast local actors and kids from around the region and many residents came out to be background actors,” reads the film's Vimeo page. “Every night our crew and the community broke bread together in the town hall. It was a profoundly unique experience for all involved. For two weeks a band of 50 odd people came together as a family, we lived together, and got to play together at making a film. This tight knit togetherness fit with the spirit of what our film was trying to convey.”
