Mid-Winter Break Filmmaking Camp

February 20 - 24, 2017

Make a movie in five days, meet new friends, and have a lot of fun! SIFF's Mid-Winter Break Filmmaking Camp for 9 - 12 year-old filmmakers is a great primer for students who are interested in experiencing the process of making a short film. Taught by a professional media educator and experienced mentors, SIFF's five day exploration of the art form is the perfect way to make a lasting impact in Mid-February.

Make a short film in just five days! It will be fast paced, but in small groups 9-12 year-old students will learn the basics of working together as a movie crew, writing scripts, directing actors, using accessible filmmaking technology, and digital editing. At the end of the week, your short film will be "in the can" and we will celebrate with a family screening in the SIFF Film Center Theater. Finished films will be uploaded to a group video link for parents to download and share the final products.

The Mid-Winter Break Filmmaking Camp is taught by a professional film educator and four  filmmaking mentors. Not only will students have a comprehensive experience of creating a film, but also the great open doors of the Seattle Center to have some fun when they need a break.

All equipment is provided but students should expect to bring a morning snack, a sack lunch, and their creativity for each day of the camp.
