Summer Film Camp

June 17 - July 26, 2019

Florida Film Institute's Summer Film Camp is a six week intense filmmaking program that takes place from June 17, 2019 – July 26, 2019. The camp will meet on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 10am to 1pm. There will be three field trips which will take place during the camp sessions on select Fridays. FFI will give up to 25 high school students ages 13 to 18 the opportunity to focus on essential and practical aspects of commercial motion picture production, including script preparation, cinematography, lighting, sound recording, directing, editing, acting and music. The program will feature instruction by South Florida Film Industry professionals. At the end of the session participants will showcase their short film project at the theatre. The camp will be held at the Coral Gables Art Cinema.

The total fee for the 2019 summer film camp is $695 plus $50.00 registration fee – total of $745.00. The deadline to register is June 3rd.

FFI is able to offer this discounted fee to each participant because of the generosity of our sponsors. Interested students must fill out the required registration form. A phone interview will be set up with the parent and then the student.
