FFI's Summer Film Camp is a six week intense filmmaking program that takes place from June 12, 2017 - July 21, 2017. 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. 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, located at 260 Aragon Avenue in Coral Gables.
The fee for the 2017 summer film camp $695 plus $50.00 total $745.00.
Interested students need to fill out a required registration form and pay a non-refundable 50.00 fee. A phone interview will be set up with the parent and then the student.
