Now into its second year of operation, FilmCampForKids.com is announcing five one-week camp bursaries valued at $175 each to children in need served by local charities, three of which are sponsored by TD Bank Group.

“Our camp gives kids and youth a chance to dream – and to build upon their technology and leadership skills,” says Amanda Gellman, Camp Producer and Board Member for the Centre for Film, Digital Media & the Creative Arts. “Last year was a smashing success. Campers learned many aspects of filmmaking, and everyone worked very well together. We also offered mid-day bus and walking tours, including visits to the university and college film departments, arts and science organizations, parks and other local ‘hot spots’ for budding filmmakers. Our goal is to grow young talent, and to connect young people to film and digital media resources in Windsor-Essex.”

FilmCampForKids.com hires post secondary students to provide hands-on mentoring and coaching. Board members of the centre also participate in the teaching and learning, along with many film and arts professionals in the community who support the organization.

The centre is a part of a renowned international filmmaking network, Raindance.org, which offers global connections for local product. The Birder, for example, was shown in the Raindance Film Festival in the UK in 2013.
