    * 1 Incredible Summer

    Get hands-on experience with professional equipment, use current techniques, and learn life and job skills through the inspiring and collaborative process of creating media art.

    Once completed, your film (or films) won't gather dust. We'll put it on the big screen at Bryn Mawr Film Institute. In addition, a number of workshop participants have used their work in the SFW as part of successful applications to film schools like the Tisch School of the Arts at New York University, and other programs at universities like Villanova, and have put their SFW experiences to work in film and media internships and jobs.

    The workshop meets Mondays through Thursdays for six weeks during the summer at Bryn Mawr Film Institute. The film will premiere at Bryn Mawr Film Institute at some point after the workshop concludes. Tuition includes training, the use of equipment, and materials. Limited scholarships are available. This program is open to high school students, including rising ninth-graders.
