Summer Film Academy

» Learn all aspects of filmmaking in just two weeks!

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 2020:

Session 1: June 12, 2020 - June 25, 2020

Session 2: June 28, 2020 - July 11, 2020

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 and breathe filmmaking around the clock while being taught by Dodge College faculty and mentored by current Dodge College students and alumni. All of this will be shared with their peers as they work in groups to create short digital, narrative projects which are showcased to families on the final night of the program in our 500-seat Folino Theater.

The application for Summer 2020 will go live on December 1st!
