Your Greenwood-Greenville Film School Alternative

Ready to join the cultural pantheon of Mississippi? Then get with Greenwood-Greenville Film Connection, the only film school that partners its students with local production companies to provide real-world experiene.

Enrolling in the Greenwood-Greenville Film Connection will mean selecting one of two paths. The first is a 6-month behind the scenes program that will partner you up with local film professionals. They will mentor you throughout your concentration and invite you to their production houses and studios. Upon completing your studies, you will have industry professionals as your first contacts in addition to filmmaking experience that will make you highly attractive to potential employers.

The second, more comprehensive, track is our directors program, which lasts a total of eight months. Your education will lead up to your final week when we fly you out to L.A. There, after meeting with your dream mentors for last minute tweaks, you and your pitch will be in a room with an industry executive who gives the thumbs up or thumbs down in Hollywood every day. Your typical film school seems like an even bigger waste of money when measured up against our program.

Greenville is also home to historic Nelson Street, which in the 1940s and 1950s was a hotspot for live blues music, similar to Beale Street in Memphis.
