Lone Star Film Festival Summer Camp Expands in 2023
The Lone Star Film Festival and TCU’s Bob Schieffer College of Communication are pleased to announce the eighth edition of the Lone Star Film Festival Summer Film Camp.
Taking place on the campus of TCU at the soundstage and editing lab of the Bob Schieffer College of Communication, the Lone Star Film Festival Summer Film Camp will host two separate camps, with the first two-week camp opening on July 10th (Session 1) and the following on July 24th (Session 2).
High school-age students interested in filmmaking are welcome to register before July 1st. Participants will learn about screenwriting, directing, producing, on-camera acting, editing, and cinematography. Each of the film camp sessions will be tasked with writing, acting, producing, and editing an original short film. Each produced short film will screen at the 2023 Lone Star Film Festival in November.
“The Bob Schieffer College of Communication has been an incredible partner for our film camp,” said Lone Star Film Society Executive Director Chad Mathews. “With the success of last year’s camp at TCU, we are thrilled with the opportunity to expand as we hope to educate and inspire an even greater number of young filmmakers here in Fort Worth.”
Last year was the first year that the Lone Star Film Festival Summer Film Camp took place over two weeks and utilized the state-of-the-art facilities on campus.
“We’re excited to join our Lone Star Film Society partners in teaching high school students the art and craft of filmmaking,” said Dean Kristie Bunton. “Film camp gives young people the chance to explore how professional communicators can change the world for good with the messages they create and the audiences they reach.”
Discounted registration is currently being offered before March 1st, and financial aid applications are open. Registration starts at $375.
