As part of a long-running partnership, Sarah Lawrence College and the International Film Institute of New York (IFI) offer a unique opportunity to learn the art of filmmaking by making your own short film.

Gain hands-on experience and instruction in all aspects of filmmaking, focusing on four core elements:

  • Screenwriting
  • Directing
  • Production
  • Post-production

The focus of this five-week immersive program is on storytelling and developing the technical skill sets necessary to translate the written page onto the screen.  Every student in the program will produce and direct their own four-to-six minute film— ready for a professional portfolio, graduate school application, or Web distribution.

We welcome adults and high school students.  Commuter students must be age 14 or older at the start of the program.  Residential students must be age 15 or older at the start of the program.
