Your El Paso Film School Alternative

El Paso, Texas is now home to one of the coolest things to happen to the Film Industry in years: Film Connection. The El Paso Film Connection is an amazing program that pairs young aspiring filmmakers with seasoned industry professionals.

Are you obsessed with movies? Do you dream creating the film that defines a generation? Well, Film Connection can help. By the time you finish our program you’ll have a finished screenplay, two finished scenes that you directed, and a trailer. You’ll be ready to make movies.

But the most important part?

You’ll know the people that can help you get those movies made. You’ll have contacts from all corners of the film industry.

Look, you have to face facts. The traditional route of going to film school and making a short and then it getting picked up by a festival is dead. Who even goes to film festivals anymore?

Traditional Film Schools are expensive and they’re a dead end.

Film Connection is the future.
