The way the Film Connection works is simple. We have filmmaking professionals in cities throughout the U.S. Our professional directors, editors, cinematographers, screenwriters and producers will train you inside their film companies as an extern, teaching you many of the crucial technical skills you need to work in film. At the same time, you’ll also be paired with a professional director, producer or screenwriter who will help you develop your best idea for a great movie. You will then fly to L.A. or New York and pitch your idea to a studio, executive, or film producer who can get your movie made. They don’t call us revolutionary for nothing.

Do you have an amazing idea for a movie that you’ve been longing to make or sell but don’t know where to start?

By the time you graduate from our unique alternative to film school, you’ll have a finished screenplay or outline and a solid pitch. You’ll then have the option to fly out to Los Angeles or New York and pitch your film idea to a Hollywood producer or development executive. Yes, you read that right: The Film Connection gets you in the room where you could get your movie sold or made.
