SIFF and LANGSTON are excited to present our first Thanksgiving Filmmaking Camp collaboration for youth aged 9-12.

Kids filming outside at Langston with mentor

November 25 - 27, 2019

Create a few short films in just 3 days!

In small groups of 3-6, students will practice storytelling techniques while learning the basics of working together as a movie crew, writing scripts, directing actors, using accessible filmmaking technology, and digital editing. On the final day, we will world premiere all the finished films at Langston Hughes Performing Arts Institute with family and friends. Finished films will be able to be viewed online or downloaded to share with as many people as you'd like.

SIFF Filmmaking Camps are taught by a professional film educator and a group of filmmaking mentors. Students will get a comprehensive experience creating several short films and learning new storytelling techniques.

All equipment is provided. Students just need to bring a morning snack, a sack lunch, and their creativity for each day of the camp. A light nutritious afternoon snack will be served.

SIFF collaborates with LANGSTON on this and other programs, supporting their mission to strengthen and advance our community through Black arts and culture.
LANGSTON was created in response to both the community and City's desire to support the historic mission of Langston Hughes Performing Arts Institute. LANGSTON was conceived and designed by community members to serve as the hub for African American arts and culture in Seattle.

Please email SIFF Education if you have any questions about these camps.
