Located in southeastern Idaho near the Montana border, Idaho Falls and nearby Pocatello have a combined population over over 100,000. The mountainous surroundings and semi-arid sunny climate make this a great area for finding locations for filming. Despite its seemingly remote location, the Idaho Falls-Pocatello area is home to several film/video production companies, making this a surprising alternative to larger metropolitan areas if you're considering a career in filmmaking as a film director, film producer, film editor, or cameraperson.

Idaho Falls, Pocatello and nearby areas are potential sites for major movies, commercials, TV shows and documentaries. Indeed, numerous well-known movies have been filmed in Idaho. These include (just to name a few): Bus Stop, Ghost Dad, Dante's Peak, Smoke Signals, Northwest Passage and Napoleon Dynamite.  Additionally, Idaho is home to no less than seven annual film festivals.

With beautiful scenery and production facilities close by, the Idaho Falls and Pocatello areas are naturally friendly to professional filmmakers and film students alike.  Why go anywhere else to learn filmmaking?

Good luck with our film school.
