Your Great Falls Film School Alternative

Great Falls now has a unique film program to call its own with Great Falls Film Connection. We’ve partnered with actual working filmmakers to give you a taste of what it’s really like to be in the movie industry. Our 6-month behind-the-scenes track hooks you up with specialists in your area who will mentor you in their studios and production houses. At the end of the program, you’ll not only have the experience that most film school grads don’t, but you’ll also have industry contacts to call your own. Track two is our comprehensive 8-month director track. Here you’ll work with both local mentors and dream mentors in Los Angeles. At the conclusion of this program, you will be flown out to L.A. to pitch your idea before an industry executive.
