SeriesFest’s Colorado-based Education Initiatives serve students in 5th–12th grade with programs specifically designed to inspire and celebrate the unique voice inside every student. These programs include our year-round Mobile Cinema Lab which works with public and private schools and community centers to bring film-based education to local students, our Summer Workshops which enrich teens interested in deepening their skills both behind and in front of the camera, and the national Young Storytellers program which teaches short film screenwriting to fifth-graders.
SeriesFest Mobile Cinema Lab is a traveling program that brings video production and storytelling education into schools and community centers across Colorado. The program features current filmmaking equipment with instruction by professional filmmakers. We have a fully developed curriculum that guides students through writing, production, and post-production.
SeriesFest’s popular summer workshops include our 3-week Mobile Cinema Lab Intensive (formerly TV Pilot Academy) and our two-week Focused Camp. Teens can grow their visual storytelling skills on both sides of the camera with fully immersive workshops designed to teach all elements of filmmaking and TV production. The workshops conclude with a red-carpet screening for families and friends.
SeriesFest brings the award-winning Young Storytellers Script To Stage program to Denver. This free program for Denver-area elementary schools focuses on engaging fifth-grade students through the art of storytelling using timeless techniques of mentoring, collaboration, and performance. We provide public school students with an opportunity to write stories and see them brought to life.
