HIFF Staff 2017

Film Camp Instructor

HIFF is looking for instructors with professional experience in the film industry who are comfortable overseeing a group of students between the ages of 8 and 15 as they write, direct, and shoot their own 5 minute short film over the course of a week-long day camp. Instructors need to be able to provide their own camera for the shoot day and their own computer for the editing day.

There are two sessions for which we are looking for additional instructors—it is not necessary to be available for both but that is certainly preferred:

July 30 – August 3
East Hampton (Guild Hall) 9AM – 4PM
*Film Screening Saturday, August 4 at 11AM

August 6 – 10
Southampton (Southampton Arts Center) 9AM – 4PM
