The Youth Salon is on Saturday June 2, 2015. It is a day of FREE film workshops and film screenings with lunch and breakfast provided. To get a chance at getting your film screened you can submit to the online form. Visit to submit. We are taking a field trip to the Youth Salon at UArts starting at 11am for registration.

The DELPHI Summer Teen Media Program is accepting applications for its paid internship starting Monday June 25, 2018. The Delphi Summer Teen Media Program is a six-week high school level summer program that provides unique training in filmmaking.

Before filling out the DELPHI application you must prepare a cover letter, a resumé, and 2 letters of recommendation. If you need help producing your paperwork I will be more than happy to help you put it together. The form is available online and as a physical copy you can fill out by hand.
