Your Jackson Film School Alternative

Can you see yourself walking the red carpet at the premiere of your big movie? We can because we’ve got the tools to make it happen for you! We’re Jackson Film Connection, the only program that offers industry contacts that want to work with you. We teach you on the job, not in a classroom. You’ll get mentors who work in the filmmaking community and can train you to work like the pros. We have a behind the scenes track for anyone looking to learn the technical side of the process. If directing seems more like your style, then our directors track will take you through the entire process alongside mentors in your area and in Los Angeles. You’ll even go to L.A. during the final week to pitch your project to Hollywood decision-makers. Now do you see yourself at your premiere?

Jackson, Tennessee is located along Interstate-40 in western Tennessee between Nashville and Memphis. Home to roughly 63,000 people, Jackson benefits from access to a variety of good filming locations, several production companies, and state tax incentives to attract filmmakers to the region. If you aspire to a career as a film producer, film director or film editor, but would rather avoid relocating to the craziness of L.A. or New York, Jackson provides more opportunities than meet the eye at first–and FILM CONNECTION can help you maximize those opportunities.

Many major movies, commercials, TV shows and documentaries are filmed all over Tennessee, including in and around the Jackson area. A sample of some of the movies that have been filmed in Jackson and the surrounding regions include Road Trip, Cast Away, Elizabethtown, The Matrix, and the classic Walking Tall, to name a few. 

In this business, it's not just what you know, but who you know. With the professional connections and relationships we've forged over the years–plus our mentor-apprentice (extern) approach that gives you one-on-one training with a working professional–FILM CONNECTION is uniquely positioned to help launch your career in ways that other film schools can't. Over 70 percent of our graduates get hired, some even before finishing our program. Enroll in our Jackson Film School today, and you could be next!
