©reativity on Film

Through the ©reativity on Film project, The Film Foundation hopes to create a respect and understanding among young people for the need to protect and preserve our cultural heritage, and enhance their appreciation of art and creation.

The Film Foundation uses filmmaking as a point of departure to communicate to young people the important skills they will need to succeed in today's society—such as imagination, collaboration, communication, leadership, and responsibility.

The key component of this project is the "Making Movies: A Guide for Young Filmmakers" production manual. Created with the assistance and expertise of 25 professional film artists and educators, this step-by-step production manual includes tips from experts, hands-on exercises, and an 8-week filming schedule—thereby explaining the filmmaking process from story concept to completed film.

The Film Foundation has distributed 25,000 copies of the manual, free of charge, through national partnerships with The American Library Association, Boys & Girls Clubs of America, After-School Corporation of New York, Americans for the Arts, Scenarios USA, and hundreds of middle schools and local after-school programs across the country.
