Hill Country Film Society staff, working with Fredericksburg Independent School District’s Community Education program, host a summer film camp for students entering grades eight through 12.

Campers learn story structure, theme, character development and fundamental elements of visual storytelling. Students also experience the ins and outs of a film set as they make a short film. Campers and their family and friends are invited to attend a casual reception and screening of their short film at the conclusion of camp.


Be sure to check out the short films created at camp below.


DATES: Monday, March 13 - Wednesday, March 15

TIMES: 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. (please bring a sack lunch; snacks will be provided)

LOCATION: Fredericksburg High School

Studio films are made over the course of several weeks or months, but independent short films can be made in a few days. Join the Hill Country Film Society in making a short film in three days. We will touch on screenwriting, acting, directing and will shoot a short film that will screen in Fredericksburg during the 2023 Hill Country Film Festival.
