Austin Film Festival's Summer Film Camp
Austin Film Festival's Summer Film Camp provides campers with the venue, equipment, instruction, and team they need to create their very own short films and animations. Campers learn everything they need to know to comfortably get behind the camera and turn their ideas into real movies. Furthermore, they have the unique opportunity to see their films on the big screen (and walk the red carpet!) at the annual Summer Film Camp Showcase (Sunday, August 4). Students also participate in inspirational panel discussions at camp with visiting guest speakers, who in the past have included industry luminaries such as James V. Hart (writer, Hook), Rita Hsiao (writer, Toy Story 2), Robert Mark Kamen (writer, The Karate Kid), Justin Marks (writer, The Jungle Book), and Caroline Thompson (writer, The Nightmare Before Christmas).
