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

 If you want to become a successful filmmaker, you need more than just a good film school education. You need real-world experience, and that’s what makes the Film Connection film courses in Cincinnati so special. With its unique approach to learning, it offers an immersive program designed to give you hands-on training and connections that will help launch your career. 

Rather than being stuck in a classroom, at Film Connection you’ll be placed with a mentor from a real production company who can give you firsthand knowledge of how films are actually made. You’ll get exposure to every aspect of filmmaking – directing, cinematography, producing, and editing – while on location or on set during real productions. This kind of experience is not available through any other educational means.  

Get Real World Film Production Experience in Cincinnati

The key element of the Film Connection program is the one-on-one mentorship you receive from working professionals throughout the duration of the program. This gives you insider access to learn about day-to-day operations on a real set, as well as make meaningful connections with industry experts. These relationships will prove invaluable when looking for work in the future. 

In addition to honing your craft, attending film school at Film Connection also gives you access to other filmmakers who have already succeeded in their field. You’ll get tips on everything from networking and marketing yourself as an artist to finding jobs once your program is complete. All of this knowledge will prove invaluable as you progress along your own path toward becoming a professional filmmaker.
