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. The workshops give students ages 8 to 15 the opportunity to make their own short films, which are then showcased on screen for family and friends.
