NFI Summer Film Camp

LIGHTS, CAMERA, ACTION - Summer Film Camp at NFI!


You're interested in starting a career in the film industry, and want to feel what it's like to create and work on a film – well, then NFI's Summer Film Camp is for you! 

During this 2-week, hands-on course you and your classmates will create a short film from start to finish. Learn by doing: screenwriting, film shooting, lighting, casting, directing, and more!  At the end of the program everyone in the course will be a part their own 'Movie Premiere' where your film will be screened in front of fellow classmates, friends and family! 

Nashville Film Institute's Summer Film Camp:
  • 2-week, hands-on course about making movies.
  • Experience a broad spectrum of different job-types within the film industry.
  • Create and star in your own film.
  • Limited to a maximum 20 students in the course.
  • Get a special glimpse into the lifestyle and work involved in being a professional filmmaker.

Over the span of two weeks, you will dive into making a film with NFI faculty. This includes script writing & analysis, filming, as well as casting and direction. Once the writing is complete, one script will be chosen to go into production and be filmed. This is a unique opportunity to make a film start to finish in a real-world environment.

If you're an actor who normally works in front of the camera, this is also a great chance to quickly learn the other side to enhance your overall filmmaking skills.


Course Dates: June 16th- 27th, 2014.
Times: 10am to 3pm, Monday through Friday*

*Students should be prepared to stay longer if needed to complete their film project.

NFI Summer Camps are limited to 20 students, age 16 - 18 only, to provide you with lots of hands-on experience and individualized attention. The camp spaces will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.

Tuition for NFI’s 2014 Summer Camp program is only $1000.
