Thank you for visiting our website! We are a band of filmmakers, artists, performers and writers in love with making movies, media, and art. Since 1999, Lil Filmmakers’ goal is to be a place to offer young people access to video and computer technology, art supplies, classes, and other artists. Today we are a hub for creative and ambitious young people who use art as their platform. 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.

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.

Latest Projects

Lil Filmmakers Inc.’s latest film, Erudition is set to be released in 2018.

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.

Spring 2018, Lil Filmmakers helped the young ladies from Girls Justice League to produce a video that examines how the lack of reproductive health education in schools is putting young people at risk, especially young women.
