Who can participate?

WMYFI is open to middle and high school aged students. Any student currently enrolled in grades 6-12 is eligible to participate.


When and where does WMYFI take place?

The program takes place on Saturday and Sunday, November 7-8. All sessions will be held virtually. Participants may register for any of the four sessions that interest them.


What will students do and learn during the workshops?

The workshops are lead by W&M Film and Media Studies students and each of the four sessions focuses on a particular aspect of filmmaking. A live Q&A session with the W&M student facilitators will immediately follow each of the sessions.


Is there a registration fee?

No. Sessions are free to attend. Links to view the sessions and join the live Q&As will be emailed out the program weekend.


Does my student need to attend all the sessions?

No. Students may attend only one session, all four, or any number that interest them. Although all the sessions relate to filmmaking, they are designed to be viewed independently.
