The second annual Youth Film Fellowship will take place July 12-16 at The Ross Ragland Theater, intended to provide an introduction to filmmaking for Klamath County teens. Registration is $125, but through a partnership with the Klamath Falls City School District middle school students (grades 6-8) in the KFCSD district can register for FREE! Scholarships available for other grades as well.
The Film Fellowship will meet each day at The Ross Ragland from 10:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. (lunch provided) for a fun and engaging week-long camp teaching filmmaking skills such as storytelling, scriptwriting, cinematography, lighting, acting, audio, set design, editing, and music selection. Each day’s activities will also include a video chat with a Hollywood film industry professional for a Q&A and to detail possible careers in movies!
Led by Klamath Film in partnership with Southern Oregon University’s Cinema Studies program and supported by several grants including the Cow Creek Umpqua Indian Foundation, students will learn the skills necessary to complete their own film project…and that’s just what they’ll do! Following completion of the in-person dates of the camp, students will be tasked with creating their own film, with the assistance of equipment and online guidance from Klamath Film.
After several weeks of time on their own, Film Fellowship participants, families and the community are invited to attend a special youth film showcase where we will world premiere each student’s film at The Ross Ragland Theater on Saturday, Aug. 7 at 6 p.m. During this event it will be announced by a panel of judges which of the student films completed is determined our camp winner – that young filmmaker will receive a $100 prize and have their film included in the 2021 Klamath Independent Film Festival (Sept. 17-19) in the K-12 Student Category for a chance at an additional $250 prize for Best K-12 Student Film at KIFF2021.
Instructing the Film Fellowship will be Klamath Film Executive Director Kurt Liedtke, along with several volunteer regional filmmakers and educators. Free lunches each day will be provided by Integrated Youth Services.
