PtichNic is Spy Hop’s award winning, year-long film class in which students learn to write, shoot, and edit a 20-minute, professional-caliber film. 2012 marks the 10th anniversary of the program, which was conceived as an innovative way to unite young filmmakers with local indie film supporters. Since its inception 10 years ago, more than 100 Utah teens have produced 40 films that have screened at festivals around the world.
PitchNic films have screened at over 30 festivals internationally, including the Sundance Film Festival, Los Angeles International Film Festival, Westport Youth Film Festival, and CineYouth Film Festival.
