Youth Summer Camps


Every summer, Northwest Film Forum offers camps for children and teens to get hands-on with the arts and craft of filmmaking. Camps for 8–18 are taught by experienced local filmmakers, and offer the chance for budding directors, editors and DPs to get practical experience with professional-level filmmaking gear and software, and let creativity run wild. Scholarships are available, contact [email protected] for more information.
