Welcome to Silver Screen Studios

A growing series of short documentaries that celebrates how we can live better while living longer. Who better to give us lessons to apply throughout our lives and show us how to face those later years with dignity, spirituality, wit, and candor than our elders who are living out loud in their silver years?

Meet TV legend Norman Lear, whose creative spark continues into his 90s. Be inspired by Phyllis Shlecter, who was bat mitzvah’ed at age 82. Listen to the love story of Dick and Lois Gunther, falling for each other again 70 years later.

Come meet our bubbes, zaydes, aunties, and neighbors. Then, introduce us to yours: Record an interview with the person who you think is living their silver years in an inspiring way — and share it!


Do you know someone who is living their silver years to the fullest? It’s easy to share their story and inspire others by contributing a short video interview, using our DIY #SilverScreenStudiosProject toolkit. Discover how to upload your video, and even have it featured as part of the the official series!
