Your Boulder Film School Alternative

While there is more than one Boulder Film School program from which to choose, there is only one that hooks you up as a film student apprentice (extern)  inside an actual Boulder film production company, working with the pros while you learn directing, producing, editing, camera, screenwriting or general production. In Boulder, Colorado, there's no better way to launch a career in film than to start as a film apprentice (extern) inside a Boulder film production company–and no film school that can get you there better than FILM CONNECTION. 

Don't make the mistake of spending 10-50 thousand dollars to go to film school at a college or film trade school, when you could go to film school in a real production company for a fraction of that amount. Play it smart–get on the inside track, and make vital industry contacts while getting your education in a real-world environment. Our film school alternative is the smartest, most cost efficient film program out there today.

Pedestrian-friendly, convenient to plenty of outdoor recreation, and home to University of Colorado at Boulder, this town is consistently ranked in surveys as one of the healthiest, happiest and most educated cities in America. In addition, Boulder is extremely arts-friendly and film-friendly, hosting a number of arts and film festivals annually. 

Because of its location and surroundings, Boulder is also a favorite site for filmmakers.

A sampling of the movies that have done location shooting here include American Flyers, Catch and Release, About Schmidt, the Woody Allen film Sleeper, and the classic film The Glenn Miller Story (starring James Stewart) to name a few. The popular 1970s sitcom Mork & Mindy was also set in Boulder, and the external shots for the show were shot on location here.
