Another summer of fun awaits at TIFF Bell Lightbox! TIFF’s Film Camps aim to provide children with the opportunity to explore the art of filmmaking in a fun, educational, safe and inclusive environment. Designed for ages 8 – 17, TIFF’s camps are led by film industry professionals and encourage campers to create stories while developing the skills to produce their own films.
The Our Kids review of TIFF Camps & Workshops
This is the kind of camp that parents wish they had when they were kids. Truly, it’s a bit like a dream come true: kids spend time with film industry professionals, engaging with their passion for the technical and/or storytelling aspects of the medium, along with peers who share that passion. Hosted in the Bell Lightbox, it’s like stepping back stage of an internationally recognized film festival because, well, that’s exactly what it is. Kids come away having had a unique experience, gaining confidence in their creative and social abilities. They also gain a sense of participation within one of the cultural cornerstones of the city. Any way you slice it, there’s a lot to love. It’s not for everyone, but if a child even has just an inkling of an interest in film, this is the place to indulge it.
