Camp Citizen Jane is committed to increasing the presence, influence and success of women in the film industry by giving young women (rising 7-12 grade students) the tools necessary to view themselves as directors, writers, cinematographers and editors.

Part of Columbia Public Schools' Summer SUNsational program, Camp Citizen Jane inspires girls to express their unique vision of the world through the art of filmmaking and gives them the tools to be able to do it.

We are proud to offer two options to students at Stephens College.

Session 1: Citizen Jane: Basic Tools of Filmmaking and Media Literacy (Grades 7-12, Girls Only)

Dates: June 8-19, 9 a.m.-4 p.m.

The class is taught in conjunction with Stephens and CPS faculty. This unique and intense summer experience is for girls who want to learn the industry basics of filmmaking: screenwriting, directing, cinematography, lighting, sound and editing. Media literacy is discussed as it pertains to girls and women and how they are portrayed in life and media. Upon completion of the film academy, participants will receive a free one-year membership to CAT-TV, allowing them access to equipment and support needed to continue telling their unique stories. Limited enrollment.

 

Session 2: Citizen Jane: Advanced Tools of Filmmaking (Grades 7-12, Girls Only)

Dates: June 22-July 2, 9 a.m.-4 p.m.

This class is open to girls who have completed the first session, have attended any previous Citizen Jane summer course, have been trained in basic filmmaking or can demonstrate proficient skills. This course is taught by a collaboration of Stephens College and CPS teachers, and Stephens College Digital Film Department students. Session 2 focuses on helping students create finished short film projects for possible submission to festivals. Upon completion of the camp, participants will receive a free one-year membership to CAT-TV, allowing them access to equipment and support needed to continue telling their unique stories. Limited enrollment.
