First-Time Filmmakers is for young people, ages 16-23, and provides a short introduction to  the creative art of filmmaking and sharing stories. Through this workshop, film industry professionals will touch on all aspects of filmmaking and learn how to make your very own film.

Through this experience, the youth will learn storyboarding, scripting techniques and visual storytelling. They will also learn technical skills, such as exposing an image, composition and audio recording, through hands-on experience with professional filmmaking equipment.

First-Time Filmmakers aims to help empower youth. Research continues to demonstrates that when youth are trained in filmmaking and given an opportunity to present their work to an audience, incredible things happen such as: increased self-esteem, identity exploration and reinforcement, creative expression, and empowerment.
