Veterans Make Movies

Veterans Make Movies

Make a short movie from start to finish in these free classes designed exclusively for veterans. Draw inspiration from the work of artists and veterans in LACMA’s collection, and dissect movie clips to discover the mechanics behind great filmmaking. Over the course of eight weeks, professional filmmakers will teach you how to create a compelling movie that captures your unique perspective. Finished films will screen at the museum and be a part of an online channel showcasing the diverse experiences of veterans. All levels welcome and all equipment provided.

The next session will take place in summer 2019. Applications will open in March.

Presented by LACMA in collaboration with the Los Angeles Public Library, Veterans Make Movies is a three-year initiative consisting of filmmaking workshops, screenings, and community events focused on highlighting the veteran experience. This project was made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services, Sony Pictures Entertainment, and The Albertsons Companies Foundation and The Vons Foundation.IMLS and LA Public Library Logo
