Your Laredo Film School Alternative

A hot city deserves an even hotter film school. And that’s where Laredo Film Connection comes in. We hook you up with local filmmaking professionals as your mentors and give you the experience that no other school provides. You can choose our 6-month behind the scenes course and focus on a specialized area of filmmaking. Or you can go all-in and try our 8-month director course. Both offer local mentors, but the director track also provides a Los Angeles-based mentor whom you will visit during the last week of your program. You and your mentor will sharpen your project pitch and have a rare pitch meeting with an industry executive. There is simply no better value for your money than our specialized training.
