Summer 2021 registration now open!


Proudly named “Best Summer Camps 2020 & 2021” by Northern Virginia Magazine!


Join the exciting world of filmmaking with faculty, equipment, and technology from the George Mason University Film & Video Studies program.  Focus on both artistry and skill-building with the creation, production, and post-production of your own film, write a movie script, make a documentary, and more!  Programs offered for kids and teens during different weeks in the summer.


In-Person & Online Options
Our in-person programs have a reduced capacity, and classrooms will be reserved to host one unique program per space. For those who may not be ready to return to in-person programming, we will have a variety of online options available. Our online programs include a mix of live-streamed interactive classes, individualized and group activities, and enriching video resources.

COVID Safety Guideline
Please be assured that all in-person programs will follow strict safety protocols required by George Mason University and are subject to pivoting to all virtual platforms if health and safety conditions warrant. Required protocols will include masks, physical distancing, daily health checks, and more. Please visit our COVID Safety Guidelines for all in-person programs. We will be routinely updating the information as it evolves. Stay informed by visiting our website and looking out for email alerts and other Academy communications.
