Victoria Film Festival summer camp returns

Students have the opportunity to try each of the different roles that happen during film production

The Victoria Film Festival’s Shoot the Write Stuff summer camp will give local youth firsthand experience in the various roles of a filmmaker.

Camp participants have the opportunity to work in team environments and try each of the different roles that happen during film production – writing, directing, camera operator, actor/host and editor.

By the end of the week, they will have a short film, which will be screened on the final day with family and friends invited to the screening.

The festival has invited Ana de Lara as facilitator. In addition to serving as president of CineVic, de Lara has also taught and led a number of youth oriented programs, as well as having written, directed and produced a number of award-winning short films.

Past participants of the 2014 Shoot the Write Stuff summer camp were winners of the 2015 FilmCAN Junior Category, winning tuition to the Gulf Islands Film and Television School.

Shoot the Write Stuff will be held at the St. Michael’s University Senior Campus (Richmond Street). The camp runs July 20 to 24 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and participants are asked to bring a lunch.

The camp is open to ages 11-14 and no previous film experience is required. Please call 250-389-0444 for more information, or visit the St Michael’s University School website to register online. Space is limited.
