The power to tell stories lies within each one of us.  We are here to help you discover and experiment with the creative voice that is uniquely your own.

Our classes and workshops for adults, children and teens are open to anyone who wants to explore the art and technique of film production— for personal enrichment, professional development or somewhere between. They are taught by a faculty of active, award-winning filmmakers, offered throughout the year, generally meet in the evenings and on the weekends, and encourage hands-on learning in a supportive environment. Simply sign up for what interests you, as most have no prerequisites.
