Every year, The Roxy Theater holds filmmaking summer camps for kids, which is an awesome way to get them interested in movies and how they're made. This year, thanks to social distancing and the Coronavirus, things are a little different, but they're still planning to move forward with the camps - as with a lot of things, they're just gonna be online this year.

Each camp is for ages 8 and up and costs $50, and will run for a week either in June or July. Courses include Introduction to Filmmaking, Music Video Camp, and Archival Footage Editing Camp. They each feature daily Zoom calls with instructors, video tutorials, watch parties, Q&As, and more.

Here, the Roxy outlines the idea behind the camps and what you'll need going into it:
