Project AWARE Summer Film Institute (SFI) is a student-led narrative filmmaking experience. You’ll be working with an award-winning director, Michael Nickles, and professional editors and technicians. Students will assume all the roles that are typical in making a Hollywood movie. A story topic and script will have been developed by students in April, working with Nickles, and those participating in SFI will get a chance to shape the script before filming.
SCHOLARSHIPS: Thanks to the Warren Memorial Foundation, we have 3 scholarships for Westbrook High School Students. Please inquire by emailing or by calling 207-370-9130.
PAY-WHAT-YOU-CAN: We’re serious. Please contact us if your need assistance with the tuition at or by calling 207-370-9130.
