Girls Film students will meet once a day for a week-long course where they will collaborate with other students and create projects inspired by women in film throughout history. Students will then feature their final project during a Girls Film short-film showcase along with their fellow classmates at the Sie FilmCenter on Sunday, August 8th. These are bite-sized courses perfect for both the entry level filmmaker starting out and the experienced filmmaker looking to expand their skill set.
Girls Film will begin by students learning the basics of film grammar and shot vocabulary. Subsequently, students will dive into film exploration by analyzing classic scenes from influential films. Inspired by the analysis, students will accomplish exercises in filmmaking that will conclude with the development of a narrative short that will be showcased during the 44th Denver Film Festival (November 3-14, 2021) in front of a citywide audience of cineastes.
