DO YOU KNOW A 10-13 YEAR OLD WHO LOVES MOVIES?
If so, then the JUNIOR FILMMAKERS PROGRAM at the Maysles Institute is the place for them!
This 10-week course is a fun, engaging program where 10-13 year olds will learn about documentary films and make their own short documentary under the guidance of film professionals. At the end of the workshop, students will meet the legendary documentarian Albert Maysles to discuss their artistic vision and future in film, and the Maysles Cinema will host a public premiere of the students' films.
Get a sneak peek.
