Summer Film Programs

I'm looking into doing a 2 week to 8 week film program this summer to really learn how to become a filmmaker. I've looked into the NYFA and Chapmans/Duke's program in California. What would be the best programs out there to look into for the amateur, highschool, aspiring filmmaker?

I enjoyed Boston University's ITRP program when I did it - I'm pretty sure it's still around.

If you can afford it, NYFA is a great way to cover some basics and get your hands on real film. I went in LA in 2003 and now that I'm in film school and working on sets often, I can see the benefit of the program just about every day.
Does anyone know about the NYU summer program and getting the scholarship ?/ getting accepted ?? I've heard of people say more people who attended NYU got accepted into NYU undergrad...any truth ??


I did NYFA's 6-week summer filmmaking program and it was AMAZING! I highly recommend it. I met so many great people and the teachers were awesome. Best experience of my life :)

I was wondering if anyone knew anything about USC's summer film program? Does it help you transfer into the school at all?
