KIDS Film Camp 
Sign up for SDIKFF's two-week filmmaking camp during the Summer school break. Classes are offered in a variety of animation and live action filmmaking techniques for ages 6 to 16. Students will conceive, storyboard, write, shoot, draw, model, create sets, and perform on camera to create a completed short film. . Professional filmmakers and respected critics provide expert instruction in what it takes to understand and create a film. Kids Film Camp has given children who love movies a chance to understand filmmaking from behind the scenes. Instruction includes:
• The basics of filmmaking techniques, including camera angles, shots, lighting, sound recording, acting style, screenwriting, storyboarding, and directing.
• A foundation in film vocabulary and criticism.
• Dozens of hands-on activities, including storyboarding, screenwriting, acting, writing reviews, and making a movie.
At the end of the summer camp we invite friends and family to a special graduation ceremony featuring the world premiere of the participants' movies.
