The Young Filmmakers’ Workshop provides a dynamic hands-on, intensive environment where young people learn about the world of film and build basic to advanced level skills under the guidance of working professionals. The program culminates in a red-carpet premiere of student films at a Baltimore City Movie Theater.

The workshops for older students provide portfolio-quality work for those wishing to pursue filmmaking, directing, visual design, or acting in education and the professions. Because of the specialized nature of the program, participants should be prepared to be totally immersed in the world of film, while having fun. Younger students work in each of the studios and on the feature film while exploring the richness embodied in the art of film.

Space is limited. Early application is recommended to guarantee a place in the workshop of your choice. Age and previous experience determine placement. For all YFW Participants: Our fall premiere is underwritten by tax-deductible program SPONSORSHIP ads that are sold by students. Further information is provided upon enrollment.
