SOUTH BEND-ELKHART FILM SCHOOL

Your South Bend-Elkhart Film School Alternative

We’re South Bend-Elkhart Film Connection and we’re the best film program around. Why? Because we prepare our students for a career in the filmmaking industry by giving them real-world experience. The cornerstone of our program is professional mentorships. Whether you’re working on our 6-month behind the scenes course or our more extensive 8-month directors course, you’ll be partnered up with working professionals who will meet with you in their studios or production houses. Students in the director program are also flown out to L.A. during the last week of their studies to meet with industry mentors who will sharpen their pitch in preparation for a meeting with an industry executive. No other school will or can offer such an immersive experience.
