Treat your students to a brand new kind of learning! School classes can come to the Gulf Islands Film & Television School every spring or fall in an action-packed creative visit. Write, act, shoot, and edit their own short films while learning viisual story telling at our wonder film camp. The perfect combination of education, technology, nature and fun. GIFTS is offering one-week live-in sessions at our serene Galiano Island facility to school groups. GIFTS is able to subsidize the standard tuition by up to 30% during these programs. Students can take courses ranging from Dramatic Video Production or Documentary productions. We have also negotiated a partnership with the Galiano Conservancy Association to bring you the From the Forest to the Sea Watershed Education Program. Bookings available from mid-April to end of June. Creating a film together gives students creative, cooperative, and technical skills. Working in groups of three or four, students will be closely supervised throughout the week by a skilled mentor. Before their session, Scripts can be written ahead of time at your school or on arrival at GIFTS. Students, teachers and chaperones arrive Monday for lunch and leave Friday afternoon with polished films after our screening at the film school. Students can screen their films back at their schools for family and friends with their very own film festivals. We will post the films to our Youtube page and the students are also welcome to do what they see fit with thier films. We can accommodate and feed approximately 40 students. English or French Immersion mentors will help the students every step of the way! Join us at the Gulf Islands Film and Television School for a one of a kind field trip that they will never forget.
