Spring Break Filmmaking Camp

April 10 - 14, 2017

Make a movie in five days, meet some new friends, have a lot of fun! SIFF's Spring Break Filmmaking Camps for 9-12 year-old filmmakers are 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 spend Spring Break.

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.


Spring Break Filmmaking Camp:
April 10-14, 9:00am - 3:00pm, SIFF Film Center.
$350 / $325 SIFF Members

Limited Scholarships are available for students from schools with over 50% free and reduced lunch. Email for more information.


The Spring Break Filmmaking Camps are 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 outdoors 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.

Please email SIFF Education if you have any questions about these camps.
