Why is the last day of film camp at another location?

The fifth and final day of film camp will take place on the campus of TCU at the Bob Schieffer College of Communication - Moudy South Building.  The reason for the move is to provide better editing opportunities for each student.  TCU's editing facility has state-of-the-art computers, an ample amount of space, and the ability for each participant to edit on a terminal individually.

How will in-person film camps be affected by Covid-19?

The Lone Star Film Society and our host partners will abide by all Federal, State, and City safety requirements and will require a face mask for camp attendees and instructors while inside buildings.  Our film camp instructors will be vaccinated.  Temperatures will be checked upon arrival.  Hand sanitizer will be provided throughout the day and social distancing will be observed.
