In partnership with the United Boys & Girls Clubs of Santa Barbara County, SBIFF is thrilled to present the 2nd annual Film Camp, an educational summer program for underserved youth. Film Camp is a 5-day overnight experience held at the beautiful Camp Whittier, a 55-acre site nestled in among the hills of Los Padres National Forest where campers are introduced to the exciting world of film production and film appreciation.

Film Camp is offered at no expense to 26 young people who are members of the UBGCSB. As the blatant shortage of quality arts education programs grow in the public school system, SBIFF is stepping in to fill this critical gap. Fueled by generous donations, Film Camp opens the doorway to film education for many who might otherwise be unable to benefit from it. As we recruit students, we will seek out individuals who have a strong interest in storytelling and filmmaking.

Student activities include:
• Classroom lessons on the fundamentals of filmmaking
• Film screenings
• Hands-on training for a variety of filmmaking equipment and tools
• Professional filmmaker instruction
• Take part in the production of an original short film

To have your child participate, sign up at your local United Boys & Girls Club of Santa Barbara, visit or call 805-681-1315.
