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

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. The 2023 summer filmmaking camps for youth were held between July 10 and August 11.

During Children’s Film Festival Seattle 2024 (Feb. 2–10), we’ll tap into the timeless magic of shadow puppetry, dig into the surprises of cameraless animation, create an earful of foley, and craft fantastical prop cakes!

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