The Indie Filmmakers Lab is a two-week filmmaking program for aspiring independent filmmakers, ages 14-19. 



We invite passionate, bold, risk-taking artists who are eager to be inspired, develop their craft, and create a short film to be proud of. 

GET INSPIRED

Every great film begins with a moment of inspiration.  
The Indie Filmmakers Lab immerses filmmakers in an environment of creativity and innovation where they are encouraged to draw inspiration and ideas from art of all kinds – photography, painting, dance, music – and, with the support of Lab instructors and SFU artists, to push themselves, stretch their minds, and collaborate to realize ideas with a team of peers.  After two weeks of scripting, production, and editing, a moment of inspiration will have become a fully realized short film, which will be presented on the big screen with an audience!
