SIFF Filmmaking Camps

SIFF Filmmaking Camps are taught by a professional film educator, supported by a group of filmmaking mentors. Students will get a comprehensive experience of creating several short films and learn new storytelling techniques, while also being able to access grounds of the Seattle Center to have some fun when they need a break.

All equipment is provided. Students just need to bring a morning snack, a sack lunch, and their creativity for each day of the camp.

Please email if you have any questions about these camps.
