School Workshops

If you are interested in bringing our workshops to your school or community center, please email us at astoriafilmfestival@gmail.com

We offer a variety of workshops and residencies, ranging from 2-20 hours in length.  Note that class films can only be made in workshops that are 12 hours or longer, with a minimum of 3 hours per session.  Students that participate in short film creation are then invited to be part of the Future Filmmakers Event at the annual Astoria Film Festival.

Workshops that are less than 3 hours​ each session will focus on film history, film analysis, film-making basics like storyboarding, script writing, character and story development, and shot list creation, but will not be able to culminate in a class film and will not be a part of the Future Filmmakers Event at the annual Astoria Film Festival.

We also offer to curate a FILM CAREER SPEAKER SERIES for schools, where local filmmmakers come to speak to students about their career paths and about the filmmaking process, and to act as mentors for aspiring student filmmakers.  Additionally, we can bring a film career team to school CAREER DAYS.
