Summer Documentary Film School at MassArt

This summer MassArt is once again offering its popular four-week summer documentary mini-film school. Session runs June 6, 2011 through July 1, 2011. This is an excellent opportunity to learn in a hands-on, intensive, focused environment from working independent documentary filmmakers. You can take all four classes, or a single class, or a combination of classes depending on your needs or experience . For students from out-of-town or interested in focusing only on their class(es), a residential option is available in MassArt’s Artists Residences located across the street from studio classrooms and one block from the Museum of Fine Arts.
