IMPORTANT : We must have a minimum of 10 students to participate in the Dual Enrollment option, if we do not get that # then we can’t offer DE in the summer film camp program – thanks for your understanding! Please contact meagan@flfilminstitute.org for more info and further clarification, if needed.

Students will attend in-person- please note: there is no virtual option this year. FFI’s Summer Film Camp 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.

Currently, the two films created last summer, GRANDPA’S GHOST and INTERNET, are both doing well on the film fest circuit.

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 10am to 1pm. All CDC guidelines and protocols will be in place. All FFI staff have been fully vaccinated/boosted for Covid 19. At this time, face masks will not be optional. All staff/students will be required to wear them on site. 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 students need to quarantine at home.

All students will be required to have specific technical requirements in place (see below for more info).

The fee for the 2022 Summer Film Camp is $725 plus a $50 reg. fee – total of $775. Even though prices are skyrocketing around us, FFI is keeping the camp fee at the same rate as prior years.

AND – at no additional cost FFI will be providing high end filmmaking software to each student that can be downloaded –  and they will have permanent access to these online tools even after the camp program is over.

Food is not provided, students will need to bring their own drink/snack/lunch. Assigned and socially-distanced seating will be in place at the theater for the duration of camp.

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.
