Program Details:
The Adventures in Film Camp is part of the Powell River Film Festival specifically designed for young filmmakers. During
the day, participants learn from pro media artists, attend interesting seminars by established directors, filmmakers and media
experts, gain hands-on, practical experience making videos or animation, and have the opportunity to collaborate with and be
inspired by other young filmmakers. In the evenings, participants have the opportunity to enjoy and analyze the Festival
films, and socialize with media-savvy Festival attendees and industry people at the receptions. Participants leave the camp
with the full experience of video production, including teamwork and troubleshooting, have a short film for their demo reel,
and friendships that may well develop into further film making collaborations. The camp is fast-paced and fun, and our past
participants have been thrilled with the outcome!
