Programs by Grade: 6

Film Programs in Westport CTThe concept at the core of all our work at Filmmakers Ink is to teach our young filmmakers and artists how to focus their attention off themselves, onto something outside themselves. When they do this, they allow their talent to live, to be expressed.

Exercising creativity, togetherness and community is vital for ourselves and our young ones. Guided by Filmmakers Ink professionals, our filmmakers and actors learn by doing as they develop key creative and technical skills required for exceptional moviemaking.
