Created by HIFF Executive Director Anne Chaisson, student filmmaking workshops provide a creative outlet and a thorough introduction to digital moviemaking to help kids launch their own projects for fun, passion, and perhaps even a future career. Many of the students have come back year after year to take the class, and even siblings have joined in the fun.
