Philadelphia

storytelling

Lil’ Filmmakers is a digital media arts collective that serves emerging storytellers 11-25 years old from all disciplines of media at any stage in their craft.  Our work is built on one belief: great storytelling can change the world. We offer unique immersive experiences with three focal points: professional, personal, and artistic evolution.  We use storytelling as a tool to teach Social-emotional Learning (SEL), which is the key to helping young storytellers reach their potential by developing their self-awareness, social awareness, and self-regulation. From our programs to our public workshops, we invest in our storytellers to make certain that their new productions and projects are high quality and transition them to the next stage of their careers.
