    Want to make a movie? The PCFF Give Me 5 Youth Film Lab challenges teens to work collaboratively to complete a one-minute film, in only six hours. Assigned teams guided by a film coach will make a film from beginning to end: brainstorming, writing, storyboarding, acting, filming, and editing. At the end of the lab, parents are invited to watch the finished films and hear the teams discuss the process. No previous filmmaking experience required! Because this workshop is partially funded by the Rhode Island State Council on the Arts, in-state residents will receive placement preference.
