Your Harlingen Film School Alternative

A film school in Harlingen, Texas? You bet! We're Harlingen FILM CONNECTION, the only film school that gets you working as a film student apprentice (extern) inside an actual Harlingen film production company, where you will learn directing, producing, editing, and other aspects of film. In Harlingen, the best way to get started in filmmaking is by working as a film apprentice (extern) in a Harlingen film production company–and that's where FILM CONNECTION can put you.

Located near the southern tip of Texas near the Mexican border and the Gulf of Mexico, the town of Harlingen, Texas is home to around 57,000 people. Despite its small size, Harlingen is very significant as a major industrial and distribution hub, its Valley International Airport serving as a major international air cargo center. About 10 miles south of Harlingen, the Free Trade Bridge at Los Indios serves as a major border crossing, with a U.S. Customs presence that is able to handle the hundreds of trucks passing in and out of the country. Harlingen's unique position as a hub, plus its proximity to coastal views and other urban areas, makes it a great location for finding a diversity of locations for filming.

Major movies, TV shows, documentaries and specials are regularly filmed in Texas, including in Harlingen and vicinity. Some of the films that have done location shoots in the Harlingen area and surrounding regions include Back Roads, A Federal Case, Pink Punch, Inside America, The Open Road, Selena, and The Legend of Billie Jean, just to name a few. 

The secret to FILM CONNECTION's success is our mentor-apprentice (extern) approach, in which we hook you up with a personal instructor who is a professional in the film or television industry. As you get valuable hands-on training during real film and video shoots, you'll also make valuable industry contacts which usually lead to future employment.  In fact, over 70 percent of our graduates get hired in the industry, many times before they even finish our program. You owe it to yourself to see what FILM CONNECTION of Harlingen can do for your career!
