Deadlines Approaching for Youth Video Programs

Arlington Independent Media, which runs the Arlington’s public access channel (not to be confused with the Arlington County government channel or the Arlington Public Schools channel), has a number of programs for young film and video-makers this summer, but deadlines are fast approaching.

The deadline for the 2010 Document Arlington Project was recently extended to April 15. The project — which is actually a paid six-week apprenticeship — is open to Arlington high school students who have an interest in documentary filmmaking. Six apprentices will be chosen for the project, which runs from July 12 to August 19.

Submissions for the 2010 Arlington Youth Film Festival are due on April 16. The festival features cash prizes for films or videos in four categories: comedy, informational, experimental, and drama. Festival entrants must be Arlington middle or high school students. Public screenings will be held on May 22.

AIM is also offering a video production camp for kids ages 8 to 15. Structured as a day camp, the program will instruct kids on the basics of video production. It will also teach how to tell a story and how to creatively collaborate. The first of three camp sessions starts on July 12. The fee for the two-week session is $575. Call 703-524-2388 for more information.
