An authentic film industry experience for young people
The GMAC Film Summer School is a free two-week programme
The programme is for all film enthusiastic 15-19-year-olds – no experience required!
Students learn all aspects of filmmaking from industry professionals through these two weeks. These skills may further interest in film, helping participants gain confidence and practical skills. As well as this, the programme supports soft skills such as collaboration, leadership, and creativity.
Week 1: Preparation
Learn how films are made in the industry and what the different roles are on a film set. Tutors and industry mentors help give everyone a role on the crew and we go into preparation for the shoot week.
Week 2: Shoot week
The young film crew goes on to location to shoot and edit their film! We end with a cast and crew screening of the cut so far.
After the programme
A few weeks after, we host a red carpet premiere screening of the finished film. Here we celebrate the achievements of the young filmmakers with friends and family.
