Make Movie Magic! Film Camp is a one-week, all-day immersive dive into the world of filmmaking. 10 to 15-year-olds will learn new ways to express themselves and gain valuable hands-on experience using state-of-the-art equipment while collaborating with their peers to produce their own short films and videos.

Film Camp is an opportunity for teens to learn to express themselves, as well as to experience what it’s like to be part of a creative team. Each camper is involved in every step of the process, from operating the camera, to manning the mic boom to editing the final cut.

Aspen Film partners with the Colorado Film School to provide experienced educators to teach our camps. Our staff to camper ratio is under 1:5 to ensure each camper gets individual attention.  Our goal is to ensure your teen is safe, learns new skills and above all, has fun!

Aspen is a small town with vibrant culture and a fascinating history. As part of Film Camp, we aim to inspire young people and give them an opportunity to get to know the town from a new perspective.
