Your Fargo Film School Alternative

If you’ve got the fire within, we’ve got the connection to your filmmaking career. And it starts right here in Fargo. We’re Fargo Film Connection and we offer the very thing other film programs can’t: a path into the industry. By pairing local filmmaking mentors to you, we’ve broken down the outdated obstacles for entering the entertainment business. Whether you choose to study behind the scenes for six months or really want to be a director in eight , you’ll get top mentors who will meet you in their studios and production houses to give you a real dose of moviemaking. Our directors track even provides an additional L.A.-based dream mentor who will help hone your project’s pitch. We’ll then fly you out to L.A. to meet with this mentor before you get to pitch to an industry executive who might buy your idea right then and there! This is the future of filmmaking. This is your Film Connection!
