ACMI presents

Junior Make a Movie


This event has ended and tickets are no longer available.

Does your child love movies? Now they can learn to star in them and make their own!

Children can take the first steps on their filmmaking journey with this hands-on creative workshop designed for lower-middle primary kids.

Kids work with our experienced staff to learn how they can plan and create a short film using only a tablet. From planning a story to shooting and editing, children will participate in all aspects of movie creation while making new friends along the way. They will also learn skills so that they can continue their exploration of movie-making at home with their own devices.
