First, the festival’s popular summer camp for junior filmmakers will be held in downtown Newhall from July 18 through August 5 and registration is filling up fast.
This year; the popular Script 2 Screen Filmmaking Camp will be combined with graphic design opportunities that allow your child to be the movie studio.

Students will create a short film using green screen, special effects, animation and more and then promote that film creating movie posters, a DVD cover and other promotional items.
The camp, which is for students between the ages of 9 and 16, will be held Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at a location in downtown Newhall. The cost is $465. For information or registration, call festival director Ramon Hamilton at 661-600-6320 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
And secondly – submissions for the Seventh Annual SCV Film Festival are now being accepted. Hamilton suggests that filmmakers submit now to qualify for a low “early bird” rate, which is available until July 15. Also this year, there are reduced rates for high school filmmakers.
