West Palm Beach Film School by Film Connection
Your West Palm Beach Film School Alternative
It takes years to get a meeting with filmmaking professionals. You’ll do it in 8 months or less. Thanks to West Palm Beach-Ft. Pierce Film Connection, you’ll get your very own industry contacts who will mentor you through your areas of concentration. Spend six months learning all the behind the scenes action or eight months writing, directing, and editing your own project. Both tracks supply a local pro to guide you, but only the directors program offers what no film education can: a pitch meeting during a week-long Los Angeles trip. This chance is rare for even the most connected Hollywood players and we’ve customized it just for you! Apply today!
