"Words can't express the gratitude i have for you with this film school and everything you did for my daughter. You opened her heart as well as mine. Thank you." -Steven Eastman, Porter, ME
In August of 2016, we created the first ever Smooth Feather film school at the theater and it was a huge success. We brought in all of the Smooth Feather family and worked with 7 local youth to create two amazing short films. The next film school is scheduled for August of 2017 so stay tuned!
Smooth Feather Film School
Smooth Feather Youth Films
Over the years, we've collaborated with many different groups of youth, from Farm Art, to ARC, to the entire Sacopee Valley Senior class when we made a spontaneous film "Uptown Kezar" in about 2 hours of filming.
One of the latest projects we're most excited about is taking local youth on weekly excursions out into the Maine outdoors. This was largely inspired by a 6-week program we ran in collaboration with the Maine Department of Corrections and ARC in the spring of 2016. We're honored to be continuing this partnership with Charlene Manchester and ARC in 2017.
