You get work from the people you know and this is very true in the film industry. But if you go to an overpriced traditional film school you’ll meet some professors, other students like you, and that’s it. They can’t get you work. You need an inside track and that’s what Buffalo Film Connection provides. We pair our students up with mentors in specialized filmmaking fields. Choose the behind the scenes track to become a technical wiz or our director’s program to take your idea and hone it alongside with mentors in the biz. You’ll end up in L.A. pitching your idea during the final week of the program…which is way better than just going out for beers with other starving students during your finals week at other film schools.
IMDB lists at least 250 titles of movies, TV shows, documentaries, and specials that have done filming in Buffalo. These include Bruce Almighty, Evan Almighty, Tuck Everlasting, Canadian Bacon, The Natural, and Jump Tomorrow, to name a few–as well as TV episodes of WWF Raw, Cops, Sorority Life and Modern Marvels.
