Explore the art of film from the studio lot all the way to the critic's notepad.

What will be learned?
Film 101 (formerly Facets Kids Film Camp) is an exhilarating intro to the art of film. Expert media educators teach campers the foundation of film history, appreciation, and production. Campers apply this knowledge by working in teams to make an original short film.

Who should enroll?
We encourage young creatives of all skill levels and backgrounds between the ages 7–14 to enroll. No prior knowledge of film production is required.
