2015 Film Camp

Film Camp was June 22-26 at Cape May City Elementary. We had a great time. We had 22 teens who were divided into four groups. Each group wrote, shot and edited its own short film.

On May 24th we showed A Place At The Table at the West Cape May Borough Hall.

This was a documentary about hunger and food insecurity in the United States. Thanks to the generosity of our pay-what-you-will audience, we raised $320, which we donated to the Community Food Bank and to Hope And Health Outreach. Here are photos of the organizations receiving the checks:

In this new comedy adventure, celebrated travel writer, Bill Bryson (Robert Redford) challenges himself to hike the Appalachian Trail - 2,200 miles of America’s most unspoiled, spectacular and rugged countryside from Georgia to Maine. He agrees to bring the only person he can find willing to join him - his long lost and former friend Katz (Nick Nolte), a down-on-his-luck serial philanderer.
