ABOUT THE COMPANY

diy after schoolCinemakidz is a Brooklyn-based youth arts STEAM educational program, offering children ages 5 -15 the opportunity to explore the world of movie-making in an engaging and interdisciplinary manner.  We offer after school classes, birthday parties, summer and vacation camps, weekend workshops and free events throughout the city.  Filmmaking is such an amazing all-encompassing process.  Children who take our classes often realize passions they never knew existed.  We work closely with every student to help them discover what they love about filmmaking.  We see movie making as a means to explore the world around us in a hands-on exciting way.  Our classes are interdisciplinary in their design; several include building, robotics, historical research and critical thinking skills, writing, art, engineering, and more.

 OUR HISTORY

imovieCinemakidz was founded by a group of Professional Filmmakers and Educators in September 2014.  Prior to developing their own business, the founders worked at several renowned NYC camps and educational institutions.  Team CinemaKidz has developed a deep understanding of child cognitive development and the important role creativity plays in building self-confidence and critical thinking.  The program is designed to engage children in ways that complement and enhance traditional education.

The organization has cultivated a vast network of talented colleagues and friends that support the mission and vision of Cinemakidz.  CinemaKidz hires professional guest educators and freelance filmmakers, artists and movie buffs to assist with classes and movie productions.
