It is with sadness and regret The Movie Institute must announce that Kamp Hollywood 2020 is yet another casualty of the Covid 19 pandemic. It was a tough decision, but nothing is more important than the safety and health of our young Indies, so due to Covid 19 infection risk, we will not be able to present Kamp Hollywood during its 20th year. Yes, disbelief and sadness abounds...
As you can imagine, this is a deep disappointment to the kids, to our mentors and staff, and parents as well. And as much as it is a disappointment, it is also a financial hit of the highest magnitude to your nonprofit The Movie Institute. As with many program based nonprofits, we are very much struggling. So, if MI has helped your kids in any way, or if you care about giving kids mentoring and hope for a successful, purpose-driven future, could you see your way to helping MI survive this crisis today?

We will be presenting innovative and fun virtual workshops this Fall so that our needed community work will continue. Please look for those coming soon!
Thanks for your continuing support of our work with youth that gets them future and work force ready!
Please help us continue to help them by making a tax deductible donation today!
