New! Public Film Making Workshops

We are so proud to have Director’s Cut as a main sponsor to join us in presenting our new and exciting Film Making Workshops.

The Director's Cut is the first mobile film and imaging studio dedicated to children in Canada who provides the opportunity for children  from grades 4-12 to experiment with digital film and imaging software and hardware. As former educators in the public system in Ontario, its founders Bryan and Lori Goldmintz, have created templated workshops to introduce the "digital kid" to everything from publishing storybooks, to comic books, to showing children that toys have a life of their own!.  Tweens and teens get a kick out of feature film making (Hollywood style), claymation and expressing their views through the creation of a live action documentary. We are so fortunate to have this team of experienced and enthusiastic film makers/educators to work with the Reel Fun Film Festival!  They are most certainly an asset to our festival.
