In Longhouse Media's SuperFly Filmmaking Experience workshop, presented by SIFF Education, filmmakers and actors aged 13 to 19 showcase their skills, collaborate with other artists, and premiere original work at Seattle International Film Festival.

Fly Filmmaking challenges local, independent filmmakers by condensing the filmmaking process into a tight production schedule with limitations imposed on time, funds, and other resources. Completed projects debut at the annual Seattle International Film Festival.

An extremely artistic, creative, and stimulating form of filmmaking in which filmmakers and actors are able to showcase their skills, collaborate with other artists, and premiere their work at the Festival. Based on the incredibly short duration of time allotted to the filmmakers and actors, this process can be referred to as "on the fly," hence the name: Fly Filmmaking.
