Film Club - for children

Film Club

We are back for the third time with our 5-week course! In small groups children learn about film, photography and visual design. We will guide and inspire them in creating their own story for a short film, they design a concept, they film and they edit it all into a completely finished product. This could be resulted in a fiction film, documentary film or animation. 

Do you have a kid who likes to think visually, tells stories all the time and wants to connect with like-minded children to create a film together? This will be a beautiful chance to explore their skills. We invite children from 8-12 years old to go on an artistic adventure with us. Children with or without filmmaking experience can join.
