(AGES 13 - 17):

Take your talents to the big screen! Grindstone and FAVA co-present a summer film camp where students will make new friends and create original short films to last a lifetime.


Reel Teens: Acting for Film, led by Grindstone Theatre, will take young actors on a two-week journey into the magic that makes cinema. Students will kick off their camp with an introduction to the fundamentals of the film world including etiquette on set, everything you need to submit for an audition, how to make a self-tape, and key techniques for acting with the camera. Students will then participate in a mock-audition and casting process, a film shoot of short films written by their screenwriting peers, and two screenings of rough and final cuts of their student-made films!


Grindstone Theatre School is pleased to introduce film studies to our Theatre School, in collaboration with the Film and Video Arts Society of Alberta (FAVA).
