Crash Kids

Crash Kids is a non-competitive movie production challenge that takes participants from movie concept to movie screening over the course of a day.


Crash Student (Ages 13 - 22) | October 11

Crash Kids (Ages 8 - 12) | December 13

Crash Kids is free and engages local schools, youth, and families with a meaningful approach to cinema production. Participants receive hands-on experience with filmmaking in less than 24 hours.

Young people arrive in the morning, are assigned teams, and are given basic materials and instructions for their films. Then the teams scatter to script, shoot, and edit their productions. At the end of the day, the new films are screened for the first time at the Crash Kids Cinema world premiere and wrap party.
