Your Alexandria Film School Alternative

Holy Coolness, Batman! A film school in Alexandria! That’s right, Bat-fans; we bring the film school to you. You’ll be paired with a show biz Mentor who will guide you through a one on one curriculum tailor made to you. At the end of eight months you will know more than enough to get a job in the industry and know the people who can give you a job. What more could a film student ask for? Film Connection. Tailor made to you.

Don’t be fooled; going to film school at a film trade school can cost you 10-50 thousand dollars or more–plus whatever it costs to relocate.  Why do that, when you can spend far less money and go to film school in a real production company right in Alexandria? Be smart about your future–get connected as you get educated. Our film school alternative is the smartest, most cost efficient path to a career in the film industry.

Alexandria, Louisiana is located near the geographic center of the state.  While the town itself is around 50,000 people, the surrounding metro area is actually closer to 150,000 in population. The state of Louisiana offers a generous tax incentive package for films shot on location (up to 35 percent in tax credits), and the state film office is very welcoming to new projects. Alexandria's warm climate and close proximity to other major cities like Baton Rouge and New Orleans make it a promising alternative spot for aspiring film producers, film directors and film editors to learn the trade, as opposed to relocation elsewhere.

Major movies, commercials, TV shows and documentaries are filmed all over Louisiana on a regular basis, including in and around Alexandria.  Just a few of the films that have done location shooting in the region include Escapee, The Loss of a Teardrop Diamond, Secretariat, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Steel Magnolias, I Love You, Phillip Morris, and the classic film Easy Rider, just to name a few.  

With a plethora of film and television productions happening throughout the region, and with tax incentives drawing more filmmakers to the area, Alexandria provides a great connection point for film students and filmmaking professionals alike. Connection, in fact, is a major part of FILM CONNECTION's strategy.  We place you with a working film or television professional who mentors you and helps you make vital industry connections along the way.  Our system works–over 70 percent of our students get hired, often before they even graduate. Check us out, and see what our Alexandria FILM CONNECTION can do for you!
