For more than 20 years, Light House Studio has been equipping students with the skills and confidence to tell their stories and build community through collaborative filmmaking. Small groups of students work together to learn all aspects of film production, including writing stories, translating them into screenplay format, filming, producing and directing, acting, and editing. We spoke with Program Director Rachel Lane about what the organization has to offer.

Light House Studio hosts an annual film academy in the summer, a youth film festival in the fall, and their students’ films have garnered attention at other film festivals across the country. Last year, Light House taught 82 workshops to 837 students, resulting in 285 completed films, and provided more than 60% of students with scholarships. Not only do students get to strengthen their skills and grow their portfolio with Light House, but they make lasting friendships and professional connections along the way.
