Filmmaking Camps

At SIFF, filmmakers will connect with new friends and collaborators while they work in groups to craft characters and stories inspired by their own lives and imaginations. Each student will have the opportunity to: write, act, film, and edit as they work together to complete a short film. Take your TikToks and YouTube videos to the next level while you let your imagination run wild creating characters and stories for film.

Summer 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.
