BROOKLYN -

The Brooklyn Navy Yard is hosting a boot camp this summer -- for aspiring film critics.

The students come from around the city and range in age from 7 to 13 years old.

The weeklong program is part of Kids First! Film Festivals.

As part of the program, professional actors, producers and film critics will visit the students, who will learn how to write and record their reviews. Some of them will even get to interview A-list celebrities on the red carpet.
