The Department of Film Studies at The University of Tulsa offers a residential filmmaking camp for high school students. Students will have the opportunity to plunge into every aspect of creating films, as well as exciting evening group activities and film screenings. The camp will culminate in a festival of student work to display for friends and family.

TU alum Cameron Buckley (BA ’14) will serve as instructor for this year’s Filmmaking Camp. Dr. Joseph Rivers and Professor Jeff Van Hanken will also make presentations on aspects of film production, screenwriting and film scoring.
