Summer precollege programs

We are excited to announce our 2022 Cinema Academy Precollege Programs! The Digital Cinema Academy will happen on campus June 13-17, 2022. The Screenwriting Academy will return in a virtual setting the week of June 20-24, 2022.

Are you a high school student and aspiring filmmaker? Perfect your filmmaker skills in one of our precollege summer programs.

Both Academies are five-day programs:

Digital Cinema Academy

June 13-17, 2022 held at the Indiana University Bloomington campus. This is a filmmaking camp for top filmmakers around the country. We have a capacity of 25 students, thus there is an application process that will be made available in early 2022.

Screenwriting Academy

June 20-24, 2022 held virtually. No matter your skill level in writing or developing movies, this program is for you. While the Digital Cinema Academy program is highly selective, the Screenwriting program is open to any high school student.
