West Side Filmworks caters to students who have a strong interest in pursuing careers in film and broadcast. Those students who are both mature and motivated will find the Media Center an ideal place to network within the industry. While many of our participants have prior filmmaking experience, we welcome those who are still searching for a particular focus. In contrast to other filmmaking programs for teens, West Side Filmworks encourages students to hone a particular skill, such as sound editing, camera operation, or producing. Altruism, teamwork, and friendliness are virtues embodied by our most successful students.
