Student Summer Film Workshops

HIFF’s Student Filmmaking Workshops give students the opportunity to make their very own short films! Created by HIFF’s very own Executive Director, independent film producer Anne Chaisson, workshops are held in both East Hampton and Southampton.


2 Strands:
♦ Introduction to Filmmaking, ages 8-11
♦ Intermediate – Hands-on Filmmaking, ages 12-15

Over the course of one week, students learn the skill of screenwriting, directing, acting, producing and editing, with instruction and hands-on experience from industry professionals.  The short films are showcased on screen that Saturday for students to share with family and friends. Each student will take home their very own copy of all the short films created.
