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 24-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 beautiful Southgate Community Center (3145 Southgate Cir, Sarasota, FL 34239). The camps will take place both inside the great historic building designed by the noted architect Victor Lundy, as well as on the lovely grounds of the center. We are excited that the filmmakers will have an outdoor experience during their summer break with a greater variety of places for making their films.
