The Plaza Classic Film Festival returns this year with more movies including a 2-week movie summer camp for kids beginning July 31, 2017.

The Plaza Classic Film Festival is the largest classic film festival in the world, so it’s no surprise that they are extending the festival to include kids who have a love of movies too. The summer movie camp sponsored by One Source Federal Credit Union is a way to introduce children (9-16-year old's) to a 2-week film making experience. The camp will cover introduction to film making in animation and live-action films. Aside from learning the ins and outs of movie making, participants will have the opportunity to screen their movies, free to the public on the last day of the film festival, August 13th.
