LANGSTON / SIFF CRASH Kids Filmmaking Workshop
As a part of our Langston Hughes African American Film Festival programming, LANGSTON is partnering with SIFF to provide a special 'CRASH Kids' 1-day filmmaking workshop for African American youth, ages 9-12.

Embark upon a non-competitive movie production challenge that takes participants from movie concept to movie screening over the course of a day.It will be fast paced, but in small groups students will learn the basics of working together as a movie crew, writing scripts, directing actors, using accessible filmmaking technology, and digital editing.

Crash Kids (ages 9 to 12) engages youth with a meaningful approach to cinema production. Participants will receive hands-on experience in creating a film (writing, directing, acting, and editing) in small groups with a professional media educator in less than eight hours at the Langston Hughes Performing Arts Institute.

9:30 AM | Young filmmakers arrive at (LHPAI). In the introductory meeting, teams of five youth are formed and assigned a mentor filmmaker who will facilitate their filmmaking process. The four Crash elements are selected and questions are answered.
10:00 AM | Children are released with their team to write, act and film around the Central Area neighborhood, and edit their movies. Students should plan to bring a sack lunch and a break time will be provided for the teams to have their lunches.
5:00 PM | Films are completed and given to the tech at LHPAI.
5:30 PM | World Premiere screening at the Langston Hughes Performing Arts Institute. Family and friends invited. Parents may download their child's Crash Kids film from SIFF starting the Monday morning after the event.
