Adventures in Film Camp

The Rotary Club of Burnaby is proud to participate in a number of Adventure programs established by other Rotary clubs. These adventures take place throughout the country and are an opportunity for youth to showcase their talent, learn from industry professionals and an opportunity to further career opportunities. The club covers the registration and travel cost of the participant. The organizing Rotary Club arranges for the students to be Billeted with a host family. All other personal expenses are the
responsibility of the student.
Program Details:
The Adventures in Film Camp is part of the Powell River Film Festival specifically designed for young filmmakers. During the day, participants learn from pro media artists, attend interesting seminars by established directors, filmmakers and media
experts, gain hands-on, practical experience making videos or animation, and have the opportunity to collaborate with and be inspired by other young filmmakers. In the evenings, participants have the opportunity to enjoy and analyze the Festival films, and socialize with media-savvy Festival attendees and industry people at the receptions. Participants leave the camp with the full experience of video production, including teamwork and troubleshooting, have a short film for their demo reel, and friendships that may well develop into further film making collaborations. The camp is fast-paced and fun, and our past participants have been thrilled with the outcome!
