ELMIRA FILM SCHOOL

Your Elmira Film School Alternative

Put that money back in your wallet! We just saved you from wasting it on a useless film school. Those traditional programs can’t give you the contacts in the filmmaking industry that Elmira Film Connection can. We pair our students up with working professionals who mentor them in their studios or production houses. You can select our behind the scenes program to learn the technical aspects of filmmaking. Or, if you’re going after the big time, try our directors program. You’ll see your idea all the way to Hollywood where you’ll pitch it to an industry executive. Your schooling should be an investment for your career and that’s what we train you for.
