What does our Film School Cost?

9,800 if you pay in full
10,800 if you choose to finance.

All books and materials included!

If you do your research (and we hope you do), you will find that our film school is 75% less money than just about every other film school in the universe.

Additionally, there are no hidden costs. What you see is what you get. That means no application fees, we don't charge you extra for books and materials, and we certainly don't hit you up for more money upon graduation from our film school.

Again, let us be clear: These prices include all placement research, curriculum and training materials, mentor/instructor compensation, in-studio training, and one year of job placement assistance. Everything you need to complete your film school course is included in the tuition prices mentioned above.

ANYTHING ELSE I SHOULD KNOW?

Think for just a minute about all the money you will save by going to the Film Connection. Since your “campus” will be a film set or video production studio where you live, you won’t rack up any moving expenses. You’ll never need to relocate to go to our school alternative, because we’re where you are. This means that you can keep your current job, because after more than 25 years of doing this, we’ve gotten pretty good at scheduling classes around students “day jobs.” Additionally, all books, supplies and materials are included in the Tuition price. There are never any add-ons or hidden charges with us. There are no application fees. There is no charge for the mentor interview we send you on. No money is due until you're formally accepted by your mentor, and receive your contracts from Film Connection's corporate office, and then, only after you “accept” our mentor.

WHAT'S THE NEXT STEP?

If you're serious about a career in the film business, pick up the phone and give us a call at 1-800-295-4433, 310-456-9628, or 323-329-9610 or click on the apply now button and fill in our application form.

STRAIGHT TALK ABOUT THE FILM INDUSTRY

Film School Just Got Affordable With The Film Connection

Brian Kraft

by Brian Kraft
Chief Academic Officer and COO
for Recording Radio Film Connection

Tuition is the main deterrent when it comes to attending film school. Let’s be honest. It’s hard to justify spending upwards of $100,000 to learn how to crank a dolly. It’s just not wise. And not feasible for some people. Sure, there are loans, grants, and scholarships that you can get but it’s really not worth it.

It would be a better expenditure of your time and money to accrue a fraction of that amount of money and spend it filming a movie that you created. That’s just a fact. It’s a cold hard fact.

The Film Connection costs you a fraction of the money that a traditional film school will and it pairs you with working pros, helps you get connected and helps you write a screenplay.

The Film Connection is the only way to go when it comes to really getting your foot in the door of the movie industry. It’s all about who you know, what you can do, and what you’re trying to accomplish. The type of degree you have never factors into it. Ever.

Getting ‘in’ in the world of movies is an interesting problem. There’s no one way to do it. And it seems like every time one person does it then someone comes up and boards up that crack in the wall in order to make sure that no one will ever get in that way again. It’s very strange. It’s an insular community that wants to remain that way. That’s why the Film Connection is so important. It functions as a go between for people that want to get into the business but don’t know where to start.

Don’t worry about not having any experience or skills in the beginning. If you do, great. The Film Connection will help you develop your skillset and gain experience. We want you to be the best filmmaker you can be.

The Film Connection exists in order to get your foot in the door. We place you within a real production company, give you mentors, and teach you about how to become a filmmaker. We’re here to make sure that you excel.
