Your Lincoln Film School Alternative

Lincoln Film Connection offers you the chance at something more than a diploma. We give you actual, not classroom, experience. The bedrock of our program is one-on-one mentorships between our students and working film professionals. Choose our 6-month behind the scenes program and link up with specialists in your area who will mentor you in their studios and production houses. Afterwards, you will have mastered your filmmaking concentration and have the industry contacts that traditional film school graduates sorely lack. Program two is our more comprehensive 8-month director track. Here you’ll team up with local mentors and a dream mentor in Los Angeles. During the last week of the program prepare to be flown out to L.A. so you can pitch your project before a highly connected industry executive. No other program anywhere can offer this level of industry exposure for its students.

Lincoln is the state capital of Nebraska, and with a population of around 254,000 people, is also Nebraska's second largest city behind Omaha. Entertainment industry pros and celebrities that hail from this area have included the late, legendary talk show host Johnny Carson, classic TV comedy personality Dick Cavett, actors Gordon MacCrae, Hilary Swank and Sandy Dennis, and popular comic Daniel Whitney (better known as Larry the Cable Guy). Lincoln is home to several production companies, and its central heartland location is within driving distance of major cities such as Omaha and Kansas City, making it a good hub for location filming. If you are considering a career in filmmaking as a film director, film producer, film editor, or cameraman, Lincoln provides numerous opportunities for you to learn.   

Movies, commercials, TV shows and documentaries are filmed regularly in locations around Nebraska, including in Lincoln and surrounding areas.  Some of the films that have done shooting here include About Schmidt, Terms of Endearment, Yes, Man, Up in the Air, and Tully, just to name a few. Television production is no stranger to this area, either; Lincoln and/or surrounding areas have served as locations for Hallmark TV movie O Pioneers!, as well as TV series such as WWF Raw and Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. 

With our many professional connections and relationships forged over the years, FILM CONNECTION is in a unique position to help fulfill your dreams of a career in the film and TV industry.
