Our critically-acclaimed summer camp introduces kids to the techniques, language, and filmmaking process. We now offer Film Camps at Facets in Chicago, at the Gorton Community Center in Lake Forest, and Benedictine College in Lisle.

During camp, film educators, filmmakers, and scholars give campers guidance on what it takes to understand, create, and analyze film. Screenings, discussions and creative, hands-on exercises include opinion writing, acting, story development, storyboarding, cinematography, directing, and critiquing film:
