Kids Makin’ Movies

Located on an organic farm in Aptos, CA—Thomas Farm Films is a nonprofit organization that educates children how to make movies. From script to screen, our hands-on curriculum promotes CREATIVITY, SELF-CONFIDENCE, & CRITICAL THINKING…resulting in short films that will be screened together at local theaters in Thomas Farm Film Festivals! All children ages 7 to 17 can learn the craft, as we offer partial & full scholarships for those in need.
