Youth Programs & Film Workshops


Northwest Film Forum has year-round filmmaking workshops and summer camps dedicated to helping youth and young adults learn all aspects of film production.

Youth Programs Year Round at Northwest Film Forum

2022 summer youth programs and camps will be held both virtually and in person. When more info is available, you can find it here!

Children’s Film Festival Seattle 2022 takes place February 11–20, in a hybrid virtual-and-in-person format. Get your pass to the festival here! Youth workshops are also happening during the festival: the first one that we’ve announced for 2022 is Ink & Tape, a cameralass animation workshop on honest-to-goodness real-live 16mm film. That workshop takes place Feb. 13, and will be presented in partnership with Henry Gallery ArtVentures, CFFS, and Interbay Cinema Society.

We offer a variety of workshops during the school year and a full program of summer camps. Many programs are done in partnership with local organizations.

Watch behind-the-scenes documentaries from youth summer programs here (our youngest students), here (middle-schoolers), and here (our high-schoolers).
