This isn’t a boring Baltimore film school classroom. This isn’t an overcrowded college laboratory. This is life. Real Life. YOUR LIFE.

Film Connection in Baltimore provides unique, real-world learning opportunities for aspiring filmmakers. Unlike traditional filmmaking schools, Film Connection immerses you directly into the industry, by pairing you with a mentor who is already an established filmmaker. You learn first-hand from your mentor how to create both narrative and non-narrative films, while also getting exposed to the network of contacts that comes along with established film professionals.

In a traditional school, you’re usually sitting in a classroom, listening to what the teacher has to say, waiting for your turn with other students to get your hands on the equipment or to talk to the teacher. With the Film Connection film school Baltimore, there are no other students, there is no classroom, and there isn’t a teacher. Three’s you, your mentor, and the set, location, or production company.

Don’t Spend More on your Film Education if You Don’t Have to

In addition to providing access to mentorship and hands-on experience in the film industry, Film Connection also offers courses on topics such as scriptwriting, directing, producing, and editing. This gives aspiring filmmakers the tools they need to create successful projects in a fraction of the time it would take otherwise. The courses can also be completed remotely so that students can work at their own pace regardless of their other commitments.

And you can do it all without leaving your hometown. Attending a “name” university may require you to uproot your life, spend money to move, and spend time looking for a place to live while figuring out how you’re going to pay for everything. With a film school in Baltimore, your life remains unchanged–at least until you finish one of our programs.
