CAMP

The Jacob Burns Film Center will offer virtual camp sessions for 2021. These weeklong experiences engage students in film and media making activities led remotely by our wonderful JBFC Educators. All participants will watch and discuss curated films, learn film language and filmmaking techniques, and create film and media projects while supporting one another through feedback. By creating personal work in a collaborative and empathetic environment, we seek to foster confident and thoughtful film and media makers who understand the power of visual storytelling.

Check out and register for our available camp sessions below. For 2021, our camps will be offered through a Pay What You Can model. No family will be deterred by an inability to pay.
