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. Our 2022 summer filmmaking camps for youth will be held both virtually and in person, between July 11 and August 12.

During Children’s Film Festival Seattle 2022’s slate of youth workshops (Feb. 11–20), we tapped into the timeless magic of shadow puppetry, hosted a primer for aspiring young doc filmmakers, and celebrated creative re-use with a found-object puppet-building Zoom!

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