We All Have A Story To Tell.

Create a few short films in just three days! In small groups of three to six, Black film students (aged 9-12) will practice storytelling techniques while learning the basics of working together as a movie crew, writing scripts, directing actors, using accessible filmmaking technology, and digital editing.

Monday, November 22–Wednesday, November 24
Langston Hughes Performing Arts Institute (104 17th Ave S, Seattle, WA 98144)

Students apply to be a part of this FREE filmmaking program, a co-presentation by LANGSTON and SIFF. There are expected to be 20–25 confirmed students for the program and any who complete all three sessions will be paid a $100 stipend upon conclusion.
