About the event

The Canton Convention and Visitors Bureau and Film Office are once again offering the Canton Young Filmmakers Workshop for 2023. We are excited to be celebrating twenty one years of this very rewarding program. Canton Young Filmmakers has been very successful in creating an environment for storytelling, scriptwriting, directing, and acting. Many of our former campers have become professional filmmakers and have gone to school and majored in academic film programs.

Canton Young Filmmakers is more than a camp. Our program prides itself in providing an opportunity to see, feel, and touch the beginning process of how movies are made with our young filmmakers and increased opportunity for the older students to progress at a higher level of achievement.

This year we will once again be partnering with the Madison County Library for their enhanced equipment toward the creation and implementation of the student projects. The Mississippi Film Office will partner with us to provide curriculum and experienced instructors with filmmaking experience.

We are looking forward to an exciting summer of filmmaking and look forward to hosting your child in Canton, Mississippi.
