Your Duluth Film School Alternative

If you're looking for Duluth Film Schools, you've come to the right place! Our innovative film school is the only one that can get you working inside an actual Duluth film production company as a film school apprentice (extern). Here you will learn directing, producing, editing, camera, screenwriting or general production as you work directly with the pros. When it comes to Duluth, Minnesota, there's no smarter way to enter the film business than as a film apprentice (extern) inside a Duluth film or television production company–and FILM CONNECTION can put you there. 

Don’t make the mistake of spending 10-50 thousand dollars (plus relocation expenses) to go to film school at a film trade school; we can get you a quality film school education in a real production company right in Duluth, for a fraction of the cost of most film schools.  Be smart, learn from pros, and get connected while you get educated. Our film school alternative is the smartest, most cost efficient way to do it.

Duluth, Minnesota is a port city of around 85,000 people, located along Lake Superior in northern Minnesota, connecting all the way to the Atlantic Ocean via the Great Lakes, various rivers and waterways. It is centered amidst breathtaking natural scenery and is in driving distance to other urban areas like Minneapolis-St. Paul, making it a great area for location filmmaking. Although film schools are scarce in this area (except for FILM CONNECTION, of course), Duluth has seen its share of film and television production, and several production companies make their home in this area. If you'd rather not have to relocate to the craziness of somewhere like Los Angeles to go to film school, Duluth is a surprising alternative, thanks to FILM CONNECTION. 

Some of the movies that have been filmed in Duluth and surrounding areas include Iron Will, Far North, Fargo, Mallrats, Jingle All the Way and A Serious Man, just to name a few. Discovery Channel TV series Mystery Diagnosis was also filmed in Duluth, as well as other television series and episodes filmed here and in nearby places.

With strong professional connections and relationships we've made over the years, FILM CONNECTION is in a position to help fulfill the student’s dreams of a career in the film and tv industry, including in Duluth, Minnesota.
