“My daughter has loved every single class or workshop she has done at Filmbites. All of the staff are so welcoming and friendly and the training is tailored in a way that the kids think they are just having fun without realising the skills they are learning along the way. I would highly recommend the team at Filmbites”

-Trish Garnett, parent

“This is a rich resource for students to develop skills while learning screen acting, mask making or green screening and more. The instructors make an exciting and safe environment to unleash creativity!”

-Donna Wilson, PEAC Coordinator

“We love Filmbites. My son has delved into a world of creativity and imagination and has thrived with the fabulous teachers. I highly recommend them.”

-Bree Anderson, parent

“Filmbites is a terrific place that continues to be a constant source of help as I figure my way into the filmmaking industry. I grew up learning screen acting with them and it’s one of the best decisions I’ve made. With their support and consistent aid in giving me valuable experience, I was able to dive into the world of filmmaking at an early age. Without them I’d still be years away from being able to live out my passion.”
