The Sarasota Film Academy offers popular live and online film camps and after-school programs to kids 7-13 in sunny Sarasota, Florida. Our unique curriculum is taught by film professionals with decades of industry experience in Hollywood as well as educators from the 25-year-old Sarasota Film Festival, an event of world renown. Our instructors will keep your kids learning, entertained, and occupied in the safety of their homes, enriched with an invaluable skill set for our times.

Filmmakers learn in a fun, conservatory model where each student gets to experience different film-related professions. The students will also truly understand the value of teamwork and collaboration.

The finished projects have public screenings for family and friends at the end of each week of camp or month of after-school programs.

The Location

The location of this year’s camps is the Fogartyville Community Media and Arts Center in beautiful downtown Sarasota (525 Kumquat Ct, Sarasota, FL, United States, Florida). We are excited to host our young filmmakers in such a fun venue, with both indoor and outdoor components.
