A DOCUMENTARY film is being planned for next year’s 20th anniversary of the Derwent Valley Youth Future Action Team (D’FAT). The peak organisation for local youth turns 19 on February 13 and thoughts have already turned to next year’s landmark anniversary.
“Next year will be extra special as D’FAT will achieve the milestone of becoming 20 years old,” D’FAT chairman Nic Kaiser said. “Despite a review of Derwent Valley Council Special Committees, D’FAT is confident that it will reach this milestone and has agreed to celebrate this milestone by producing a documentary,” Mr Kaiser said.
“With the support of the Peter Underwood Centre For Educational Attainment, it has been agreed to begin developing the documentary during 2021 and it will cover activities, projects and achievements of D’FAT through interviews with former members from 2012 until now,” Mr Kaiser said. “This documentary will compliment D’FAT’s existing 10-year (2002-12) documentary, which was produced in 2011.
“D’FAT is quite excited about the development of this project and is looking forward to reaching the milestone of turning 20 years old,” D’FAT facilitator Matt Hill said. “D’FAT is currently the third longest functioning Local Government youth advisory group in southern Tasmania and overall fourth in the state,” Mr Hill said.
“D’FAT is inviting former members from 2012 to 2021 to participate in the new documentary,” he said. Former members can contact D’FAT by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or through its Facebook group.
