What do you get when you take 14 loving grandparents, 1 'favorite' uncle, 13 bright and energetic grandkids and combine them with enthusiastic, knowledgeable instructors, great material and location? Lots of interaction, cooperation, learning and laughter, new friends, memorable experiences, and finally:....a film! Karen

I have participated in 5 Intergenerational programs with my grandchildren. We have enjoyed them all but this one was exceptional. In teams of 6 or 7 the grandparents and their grandchildren actually made a movie from conception of an idea, through staging locations, scripting (using stunts learned in a special session), filming, editing and ending with the showing of the finished film. The professional support from the International Family Film Festival staff made all the difference in the quality of the experience and the finished products.

Awesome program for young teens and grandparents. Not only did we learn how to make a short movie, the children learned team building and compromise is a fun way! I highly recommend this program to grandparents who would like to spend quality time with their grandchildren without the stress of having to think of something to do every day.

Great program. My grand-daughter (and I) learned a lot about the film-making process. The instructors were very helpful and gave good life, as well as career, lessons.

Great program. Both kids and grandparents were involved in planning, executing, revamping shots and all the details in making a short movie. The professional help from IFFI Films program was helpful and readily available to assist throughout the program. Kids enjoyed learning stunts from Jason Medbury. He provided good instructions and a safe environment to practice 5 or 6 different stunts. The Makeup Seminar produced many different gruesome looking injuries as the kids asked for a variety of make up and special effect techniques. Well done program that could have used additional time (possibly omitting the trip to Sony Studios) in order to give more time for filming and editing. Great teamwork. Kudos to the kids, grandparents, and professionals who provided so much assistance.

This was very informative and fun. The teamwork between the kids on a team and the grandparents was delightful. You can really be active in the process and get lots out of the time spent. Well done.

This is an excellent program for intergenerational participation. Grandchildren and grandparents join actively to script, plan, film and edit a final product which all participants view on the final evening. You are provided a thumb drive to take your film home and a cd is sent to you later. The staff is enthusiastic and helpful. The kids step up to the process and have so much fun doing it. The classes are interesting too and very well done. It was the seventh intergenerational for my grandson and me. So glad we did this one which is more active than most.

If you like films, if you ever wondered "how they do that" in a movie, if you thought you might want to make your own, go to Intergenerational Hollywood Film School.
