Your Albany Film School Alternative

The truth is this: you don’t need to go to an expensive film school. We’re Albany Film Connection and we’ve got the inside track to mentorships with film professionals while you learn.

If you select our 6-month behind the scenes track, you will be paired up with experienced local filmmakers who can not only mentor you through the technical aspects of your career but also give you an accurate snapshot of the Georgia filmmaking landscape.

Should you choose our 8-month director track, you will not only be linked up with your local mentors but an additional dream mentor, a working professional in Los Angeles, who will meet with you during the final week of the program when you will be flown out to L.A. to meet pitch your project to an industry executive who greenlight projects all the time here in Hollywood. Never before has such an opportunity been available to filmmakers in Albany!

Albany, Georgia is located in the southwest section of the state, with a population of around 75,000. At first glance it might not seem like a likely place for a film school, but there are several production companies in the area, and Albany is within driving range of several major cities and filmmaking hotspots like Atlanta and Jacksonville. That, along with a fairly warm climate fed by the Gulf of Mexico and a frequency of location filming throughout the state, make Albany, Georgia a surpising alternative. If you don't want to have to relocate to L.A. or New York, but you do want to pursue a career in filmmaking as a film director, film producer, film editor, or cameraman, you can do it right here in Albany.
