The Camp Flix curriculum has been developed and finessed by a team of professionally active filmmakers and teachers, and other film industry professionals. We believe that learning how to share stories with others is at the heart of Camp Flix.

CAMP FLIX gives its young filmmakers the opportunity to explore the entire filmmaking creative process, including: screenwriting, pre-production, acting, cinematography, lighting, sound recording, special FX and marketing. The camp provides them with the vocabulary, skills and confidence to become part of the growing community of young filmmakers worldwide with the expert guidance of our award-winning industry professionals and instructors.

Camp Flix is designed for continued education and filmmaker growth whether your aspiring filmmaker or actor is a returning middle school or high school camper. First year campers of all ages will learn the basics of filmmaking while those returning for multiple sessions will always learn something new while upgrading their skills with advanced classes as well as having more time to make their films.
