Your Minot Film School Alternative

Because of dreamers like you, we’ve developed Minot Film Connection. Local production companies are stepping up to work with our students and you can partake in one of two ways. You can try our 6-month behind the scenes program where we will pair you up with local mentors who work in the Minot area specializing in your area of production. Or you can try your hand at our 8-month director track that culminates in a finale that no program anywhere offers. We’ll fly you from Minot to L.A. to meet with a dream mentor who will help you hone your movie’s pitch. Live like a Hollywood insider and pitch your idea to an actual industry executive.
