The teams will have 5 hours to make their 1-minute films with the guidance of a coach, and then screen and discuss their work at the end of film lab. Parents and caregivers are invited to attend the screening. Work produced at the Film Lab will be considered for broadcast on the RI PBS show, Teenage Critic, and eligible for submission to the 2015 Providence Children’s Film Festival.
