Summer Film Camp

June 20 to July 29, 2022

The Florida Film Institute (FFI), in partnership with Coral Gables Art Cinema, is producing the 12th annual Summer Film Camp!

This is a 6-week intense filmmaking program that will take place from June 20, 2022 – July 29, 2022 at the Coral Gables Art Cinema, located at 260 Aragon Avenue in Coral Gables. 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.

FFI and the theater have created a safe environment for staff & students to attend in-person. The camp will meet on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm. CDC guidelines and protocols will be in place. All FFI staff have been fully vaccinated/boosted for Covid-19. Proof of vaccination is not required for students to participate in camp. At this time, face masks are OPTIONAL for all staff and students. In the event that a student (or family member) tests positive for the virus, we will adhere to the CDC guidelines; however, there will be no online option to log into camp sessions if a student needs to quarantine at home.

MIAMI-DADE COUNTY STUDENTS who qualify will be able to earn college credits towards a degree with FFI’s Dual Enrollment component. These are transferable credits that can be applied to an AS and/or BAS degree in Film Production at the renowned School of Entertainment & Design Technology at Miami Dade College. Students who choose not to attend MDC-N/SEDT may transfer their credits to their school of choice.

The total fee for the 2022 summer film camp is $725 plus a $50.00 registration fee for a total of $775.00.

Interested students need to fill out a required registration form and then a phone interview will be set up with the parent and also the student. FFI is offering a limited number of full and partial scholarships to students in need of financial assistance. Note: SCHOLARSHIPS ARE FOR MIAMI-DADE RESIDENTS ONLY.
