Your Ft. Myers-Naples Film School Alternative

What’s better than a film school? A film school that partners you up with local filmmaking professionals to enhance your education. That’s what we do at Ft. Myers-Naples Film Connection. We’ve got two tracks that pair you up with mentors who will guide your progress. The first is our 6-month behind the scenes track for those who want to learn a specific aspect of filmmaking like screenwriting, cinematography, or editing. But if you want to be a director, get a load of our 8-month director track. Under the guidance of several mentors, you’ll write, direct, edit, and your own project before industry executives in Los Angeles! No other film program offers the total filmmaking package like the Film Connection!
