The Filmmakers Ink programs offer courses that train young filmmakers at three different levels and are designed to grow with their expanding knowledge of filmmaking.  Guided by our staff of film professionals, our young filmmakers learn by doing as they develop the key creative and technical skills required for exceptional filmmaking.

Filmmakers Ink programs are designed to give students solid life-long tools with which to access and express their creative ideas.                                                       

Filmmakers Ink has set itself apart from other film camps with their attention to storytelling through digital media, providing young filmmakers with the skill and confidence to be influential members of the growing community of filmmakers in Connecticut.
