Hands-on Filmmaking for Kids
In NYFA’s summer film camp for kids, students aged 10-13 learn to write and direct their own films and video content. This dynamic program provides students with the opportunity to gain actual filmmaking experience, following NYFA’s learn-by-doing approach.
Camp Name: 2-Week Filmmaking Camp for Kids I
During our two-week filmmaking summer camp, students learn how to compose, direct, and edit quality images, working with industry-standard digital cameras and equipment. In the first week, students create a short silent film. In the second week, students create a second film, building upon their knowledge from week one. Throughout the program, students acquire hands-on experience and knowledge about the filmmaking process. In addition to serving as directors and writers on their own projects, they also build practical set experience, acting as assistant directors, actors, and camera operators in peer productions.
At the end of the camp, films are celebrated in a screening open to friends and family. Students receive a USB drive from NYFA with a digital copy of their work. During the camp, students need to provide their own lunch.

The 2-week film camp for kids is available at New York, Los Angeles, and South Beach. As our kids programs are day camps, we do not provide housing. However, for teen summer camps, housing is available.
