Welcome!!!

Thank you for visiting our website! We are a band of filmmakers, artists and writers in love with making movies. I started Lil Filmmakers  in 1999 to offer youth a place to learn about the craft of story telling through the medium of film. I believe art is essential to living a full and balanced life. Art gives us a voice, inspiration and power.  Here at Lil Filmmakers Inc. we are advocates for the creative, the nerdy, and the awesomely weird. 

Lil Filmmakers- Creative Leaders of Tomorrow

Founder/Executive Director

 

ERUDITION

Lil Filmmakers Inc.’s latest film, Erudition is set to be released in 2017.

A nation devastated by war elects a charismatic but emotionally disturbed president to rebuild the country. But when their new leader bans books and dismantles the country’s educational system, its citizens quickly learn that without intellectual freedom they  have no freedom at all.

 

Lil Filmmakers had the pleasure of working with the youth in Opera Philadelphia and Art Sanctuary’s Hip H’opera after school arts program. Students created an oral history campaign, Un/Sung Stories of We Shall Not Be Moved for the We Shall Not Be Moved opera. Over the last five months, youth learned how to conduct and film oral histories. With the support of oral historian, Abigail Perkiss, students interviewed people who were affected by the MOVE bombing in 1985 and the School District of Philadelphia closing of 24 schools in 2013.
