Enzian’s Annual KidFest Summer Camp and Movie Series

Orlando, FL (June 18, 2014) – For most, the love of film begins at a young age and Enzian would like to continue spreading its passion for film to the young minds in its community. So begins our Summer 2014 KidFest Young Filmmakers’ Summer Camp and Film Series. This camp offers film fans and children of all ages the opportunity to learn about the art of filmmaking and produce their own independent film. After their films are finished, attendees will be able to see their finished work projected onto Enzian’s silver screen! This year, due to Kidfest’s increasing popularity,  there will be two different camps.

Young Filmmakers’ Summer Camp #1: Create your own movie at Kidfest Young Filmmakers’ Summer Camp! Experience the art of filmmaking as you study cinematic techniques, learn about the exciting history of filmmaking, and dive into the production of an independent film. After wrapping the shoot, see your work projected on the big screen with your fellow filmmakers, family, and friends. KidFest 1 is located at Enzian and open to children entering grades 5-8. No previous experience with filmmaking or equipment is required.
Tuition: $550 or $475 for Enzian Film Society members

Young Filmmakers’ Advanced Summer Camp #2: Upon completion of the prerequisite, KidFest 1, returning campers have some filmmaking skills and are invited to join us for the brand new addition of KidFest2! This camp will delve into more advanced movie-making lessons and techniques. Campers can experiment with scriptwriting and editing, and receive more hands-on exercises and creative input during the movie-making process. KidFest 2 is located at Enzian and open to children entering grades 6-8.
Tuition: $650 or $575 for Enzian Film Society members
