Girls in STEM - Film Festival

In partnership with Breckenridge Film Festival, participating girls will learn about careers within the film industry as they produce their own short films. All 3rd-5th grade girls will create their own stop motion animation film and all 6-8th grade will create their own motion picture film. No matter the film track, each girl will have support from our 9-12th grade high school mentors and a variety of females currently working in the film industry. In past years this has included cinematographers, directors, film editors, producers and more.

At the close of the program, girls will present their short films during a scheduled event included within the Breckenridge Film Festival schedule. All parents will receive free entry to the final presentation.


When: 9/16-9/18, 2022
Who: Girls, Grades 4th to 8th
Where: Keystone Science School
Rate: $325
(includes lodging, meals, programming, and use of supplies and technology)
Scholarships Available and are awarded to those who express economic need and a passion for the program.
