Young FilmMakers Intensive (YFI) is the flagship program of POV Film Culture Workshops, an education provider in the filmic arts. YFI takes high school students on a two-week journey in authentic storytelling, where they are encouraged to speak out on the issues that inspire them, while creating high quality short films through cultural lenses.
True art is TRUTH art and authenticity in storytelling is a product of the cultures in which we live.
YFI students learn filmmaking through all phases of production, from developing a concept to editing a final piece. The workshop takes place, Monday-Friday, June 12th through 23rd, 2017, from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., and culminates in a world premiere of the films on Saturday, June 24th, at 7:00 p.m.
