FILM SUMMER CAMP
Welcome to Camp!
The Phoenix Film Foundation’s film summer camps are back for 2017 and better than ever. Whether a beginning filmmaker or a seasoned pro, current junior high or high school students between the ages of 12 and 18 can learn how to make a film and take their filmmaking skills to the next level.
These camps are in high demand and sell out very quickly. Learn about our filmmaking camps below, or if you are ready to register, scroll to the bottom of the page and click on the button to register. We'll see you at camp!
Summer Camp Registration will begin on
April 7, 2017 at 9AM
Each week-long camp guides students (ages 12-18) in applying the fundamentals of filmmaking to creating their own original short film as a team. Students will develop the ability to collaborate with one another and learn how to leverage the strengths of their team. Through hands-on learning, students will actively participate in the technical elements of digital filmmaking from pre- to post-production.
Filmmaking 101 camps are $75 per week-long session. All camps are from 9am – 2pm daily and include lunch.
JUNE 5 – 9 Filmmaking 101
JULY 10 – 14 Filmmaking 101
JULY 17 – 21 Filmmaking 101
The two week-long Advanced Filmmaking Camp takes students (ages 14-18) even deeper into filmmaking techniques in order to create their own original short film. Through hands-on learning, students will actively participate in the technical elements of digital filmmaking from pre- to post-production.
Each student interested in attending the Advanced Filmmaking Camp will prepare an artist’s statement (no longer than one page) describing their past experience with creating video projects and what they hope to gain from the camp. Students not selected for this advanced program will have the option to attend one of our Filmmaking 101 camps.
Each selected student will come to camp prepared with a script between 4-6 pages long (formatted as a screenplay). On day one, we will review all submitted scripts, go through a feedback process, and choose one script to complete as a class.
Advanced Filmmaking is $150 for the 2-week session. All camps are from 9am – 2pm daily and include lunch.
JUNE 12 – 23 Advanced Filmmaking
All camps are located at the Phoenix Film Foundation’s office.
7000 E Mayo Blvd, Suite 1059
Phoenix, AZ 85054
Once all of the camps are finished, we will all gather together for a one-night-only exclusive screening of our four Summer Camp films on the big screen at the Harkins 101. More information will be given to our campers. So what are you waiting for? We will see you at camp!
