Join the JBFC’s burgeoning community of young women filmmakers in our newest club, Sisters on Set! Through interactive workshops, participants will learn the craft and techniques of modern filmmaking, analyze and discuss curated films, and gain a window into life in the film industry. Most importantly, however, members will connect with other young creatives around their shared passions in a supportive and safe environment. Join us in building the future of filmmaking, together.

This year we are excited to partner with CampDoc, a third party program we will be using to collect and consolidate student registration information in order to streamline the registration process, and enhance the parent and guardian experience while your child is participating in our program(s). CampDoc will give parents and guardians full access to their own participant portal which they can log into at any time to view course details and information, and previously submitted documents.

Once a course has been purchased on the JBFC website, an email from CampDoc will follow within a few days with instructions on how to create a CampDoc account and submit additional required registration information, such as an updated immunization record, a list of allergies, names of individuals who are authorized to pick your child up, doctor and insurance information, etc., and the deadlines by which this information must be received. We look forward to seeing your child this year.

The Jacob Burns Film Center is proud to receive generous support from:
