The 2019 Tampa Theatre Film Camps are now wonderful memories for our many campers.

The Film Camps in this beautiful, historic theatre always fill up quickly. For advance notice about registration for future summers, be sure to subscribe to the FCIT newsletter.

Tampa Theatre Film Camp provides students entering grades 3-12 with the opportunity to collaboratively create a 3-5 minute movie in small groups. Campers learn the basics of filmmaking including shots and angles, scriptwriting, location scouting, lighting, and more! They use these skills to write and create their own short films over the week of camp. On Friday, campers share their films with family and friends in a film premiere.

Registration now open!
