We are a collective of young artists dedicated to making movies and producing media content. Since 1999, Lil Filmmakers’ goal is to be a place to provide every resource necessary to create professional grade films. Today, we are a hub for the ambitious and socially aware who express their vision through film and media arts. Here at Lil Filmmakers Inc., we are advocates for the creative, the nerdy, and the awesomely weird.

Our Impact on Young Artists

85% of our career track artists continue their education after high school while 15% find jobs in the media and arts industry.                                      

We have provided over 2,500 young people across Philadelphia access to media technology, workshops and professional artists mentors.

Lil Filmmakers are award winners, community leaders, entrepreneurs and peer mentors.
