Off the Block 2022 Application


OFF THE BLOCK is open to any high-school aged (13 to 18 year old) student. No prior experience filmmaking experience is necessary! OFF THE BLOCK teaches students everything they need to know to make their first film. However, if your student already has experience with filmmaking, all the better. OFF THE BLOCK has something for everyone – beginners will find an opportunity to explore filmmaking while more experienced students will have the chance to fine-tune their skills under the mentorship the filmmakers and educators that staff our program.

Applications are processed in a first-come, first-served basis. Please note that while the program seeks to enroll as many students as possible, space is limited. Program staff will contact applicants regarding enrollment in the program on or around June 1st.

Reach out to program coordinator Nikolay Maslov ( ) with any questions!


OFF THE BLOCK 2022 will run July 5th through July 29th. Classes will meet in person at UCR ARTS Tuesdays through Fridays, 10am through 4pm. An orientation will be held on June 29th at 7pm.
