MyFi is a film production class for high school students that combines the ageless art of story telling with film. In small groups of 6-8, participants work collaboratively to form a production crew, learning:

  • screenplay writing
  • acting
  • directing
  • camera operation
  • set lighting
  • sound
  • film editing

    “Filmmakers are essentially storytellers and I believe every kid has a compelling story to share with the world”.  – Hezekiah Lewis


In existence since 2012, MyFi is a partnership between the Media Arts Council, the Media Film Festival and the Media Youth Center. MyFi instructor, local filmmaker, and Professor of Communications at Villanova University, Hezekiah Lewis and Darryl Ridgeway, vice president of BOWSTRING STUDIOS and CEO of Blue Diamond Entertainment Group, work with students.

Once the course is over, students along with their families and friends, will get to enjoy seeing their completed films on the big screen and walk the red carpet at the Media Film Festival.  This annual celebration of short independent film is screened at the historic Media Theatre in downtown Media, PA.
