VANCOUVER'S BEST FILM CAMPS
Young Moviemakers is an award-winning acting and film program for children and youth ages 5-18. Using high end, professional grade equipment, participants learn the importance of visual storytelling, scriptwriting, acting, editing and more, through the creation and production of a short film. With the help of our experienced instructors, participants work in groups to develop and produce their work, which is then premiered in front of family, friends and the community.
Young Moviemakers' aim to create an interactive, youth-driven community through our hands-on workshops surrounding the media arts. We provide unique opportunities for older, more experienced youth to develop leadership skills through volunteer and work experience within various programs. Many of our participants go on to work in Vancouver's prestigious film industry, commonly referred to as "Hollywood North".
More than just the best film camps in Vancouver - We believe that children are our future. Human beings are social creatures who have historically relied on collaboration to survive, making it a crucial skill for children to learn. Filmmaking is an exceptionally collaborative activity and our unique programs teach participants these valuable life skills in a way that is incredibly fun!
Not only do our participants learn about effective communication, acceptance and tolerance but our programs are also an excellent way to build confidence and self esteem. Even if a participant isn't completely interested in film, the technical skill set we teach directly transfers to the school and work environment. Whether an introvert or an extrovert, Young Moviemakers is an environment which is welcoming to everyone!
Young Moviemakers celebrates the success of its participants at the end of every year with a Red Carpet Awards Gala! With over 100 shorts produced in a year, the top films are nominated for the coveted "Best Picture" and "Best Performance" awards.
