2013 KidFest Young Filmmakers’
Two-Week Summer Camp
July 22 – August 4

Graduation Ceremony & World Premiere
on Sunday, August 4 at 11 AM


Create your own movie at Young Filmmakers’ Summer Camp! Experience the art of filmmaking as you study cinematic techniques, learn about the exciting history of filmmaking, and dive into the production of an independent film. After wrapping the shoot, see your work projected on the big screen with your fellow filmmakers, family, and friends.

In addition to learning aspects of making a film (script writing, character development, shooting, editing, and more), students will learn a brief summary of film history and why film is still an important form of expression today.

This two-week summer camp, held July 22 – 26 and July 29 – August 2 with a graduation ceremony held on August 4, is located at Enzian Theater and open to children entering grades 5-8. No previous experience with filmmaking or equipment is required.

“With the help of KidFest and the staff, the impact they made has made filming one of my largest passions.”
Fletcher McCall, KidFest alumni

“I really appreciate you and the wonderful members of the staff.  Ela had a wonderful time and it was a great experience for her from a camp and learning perspective.  She really enjoyed her time and what she did with you guys and already started talking about when she comes back next year. I think that you have a dedicated one with Ela….Thanks again for all you do.  You guys are true professionals and I appreciate your dedication to teaching the kids something so interesting and fun.”
