Chapman University’s Dodge College of Film and Media Arts offers a two-week comprehensive, collaborative and creative high school film program during the summer.

Dates for Summer 2016

Session 1: June 19, 2016-July 2, 2016

Session 2: July 3, 2016-July16, 2016

For two weeks students are immersed in the world of film through class discussions, film screenings, guest speakers, field trips, and filmmaking in small groups. They live, breathe and eat filmmaking around the clock while being taught by Chapman faculty who are industry professionals and mentored by current Dodge College grad students and alumni. All of this will be shared with their peers as they work in groups to complete projects to create short digital, narrative projects which are showcased to parents and relatives on the final night of the program in our 500-seat Folino Theater.
