Summer Film Camp, presented by Austin Film Festival’s Young Filmmakers Program, returns in June for its tenth annual program of screenwriting, filmmaking and claymation workshops for aspiring filmmakers ages 9 – 18. Workshops offer students unparalleled access to in-depth, personal instruction from industry professionals.
In addition to workshop sessions, campers are provided with opportunities to participate in panel discussions with special guest speakers. Past speakers include Anne Rapp (screenwriter – Dr. T and the Women, script supervisor – Funny People, He’s Just Not That Into You, The Color Purple), Jeff Nichols (writer/director – Take Shelter), Dan French (Emmy®-nominated late-night comedy writer), Alvaro Rodriguez (screenwriter, Machete) and Tom Holland (writer/director – Fright Night). Topics are based on the distinct expertise and experiences of each guest.
