Film Critics Boot Camp takes place at the Martha's VineyardFilm Center July 27 – 31 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. daily.

At the end of the camp, the kids will be invited to join the national KIDS FIRST! Film Critics team where they will attend press screenings, red carpets and other media related events and report on them. The fee is $459 and there are four (4) full scholarships available thanks to the generosity of local supporters.
