WQED Film Academy is a youth education program in digital media arts and filmmaking. The Academy is open to 9th graders through 12th graders.

Students who successfully complete the program are eligible to apply for a next-level internship opportunity with Film Academy's Teen Film Crew. Upon successful completion of their internship, they may then be invited to apply for a part-time job with the Teen Film Crew where they get paid to produce promotional videos for clients and content for our web series: "The Reel Teens: Pittsburgh." Due to labor laws, students must be 16 to receive a paid position. COST TO ATTEND ONLY APPLIES TO A STUDENTS' FIRST SEMESTER WITH FILM ACADEMY.

The cost of the program is $2,100 per student. Financial assistance and full scholarships are available due to the generous support from foundations and the Pittsburgh community.
