Your Pensacola Film School Alternative

Think you need to be in L.A. or New York to go to a quality film school? Not with Pensacola Film Connection. We’re the unique program that teaches you alongside your very own personal mentors. Choose our 6-month behind the scenes track to link up with local industry professionals in your concentration. Or sign up for our 8-month directors track. Write, shoot, and edit your own project under your mentors’ guidance and prepare to fly out to Los Angeles to meet with a dream mentor who will work with you on your project’s pitch. We then give you what no other program can: your own pitch meeting with an industry executive! People trying to make it in Hollywood would kill for this opportunity. Stop dreaming. Make your dreams come true instead!

Located on the Florida panhandle along the Gulf of Mexico, the seaport city of Pensacola is home to around 53,000 people. The area serves as a hotspot for vacationers heading for the beach, as well as home to the elite Navy flight team the Blue Angels, which are stationed at the nearby Naval Air Base. Pensacola is convenient to plenty of interesting backdrops for location filmmaking, including coastal and waterfront views, and the urban areas of Mobile, Alabama an hour's drive away. The town is also home to several production companies, and enjoys the benefits of generous financial incentives offered by the state to filmmakers. If you are looking at a career in filmmaking as a film director, film producer, film editor, or cameraman, Pensacola holds a surprising amount of opportunities for you to learn.  

Movies, commercials, TV shows and documentaries are regularly filmed throughout Florida, including in Pensacola and vicinity. Some of the movies that have been filmed in the Pensacola area and surrounding regions include World Traveler, Stone Cold, Permanent Vacation, classic films Midway and Wings of the Navy, and TV miniseries War and Remembrance and The Wings of War, just to name a few.
