Young Filmmakers' Workshops

The Nevada Women’s Film Festival has produced two Young Filmmakers' Workshops as a part of the 2016 and 2017 festivals. The workshops were hosted by the University of Nevada, Las Vegas Film Department in their studios and editing facilities.

During the workshops, children ages 8 to 16 learned the process of making short films, including the script writing process, shooting and editing. The finished films premiered at the Young Filmmakers' Showcase during NWFFest 2016 and 2017.

The workshops were led by esteemed Professor David Schmoeller and May May Luong of the UNLV Department of Film. Among her many achievements, May May was our 2017 Nevada Woman Filmmaker of the Year.
