Help the Next Generation of Talent!
Due to financial and institutional constraints wihtin the public school system, this generation of kids has less creative opportunities than the one it follows. In an effort to fill this gap, GFS developed a curriculum with an emphasis on filmmaking. Its students, otherwise known as fellows, are taught production and how to carefully analyze film.
