This is your
New York Classroom

Real filmmaking education. Real film industry connections.

An Immersive
Film Education

From directing to producing to editing and screenwriting, our externship-based, mentor-taught programs avoid the unnecessary costs and unrelated requirements of typical film schools and programs. Work directly with accomplished industry veteran filmmakers at one of our fully-equipped film production companies across the country.

Programs

You will study inside a real film production company in your city as you develop your movie idea with a legendary to filmmaker. Then you will fly to Los Angeles or New York to pitch your idea to an executive that could buy or get your movie idea made.

Director / Producer / Screenwriter Details

The screenwriter is the person who creates, takes, or adapts an idea and formulates a screenplay. Without the writer, there would be no movie. Period. He or she is the starting gate. He or she is the person that starts the ball rolling down the hill.

Screenwriting Details

In many ways the film editor is the most misunderstood of all film professionals. Often considered just a film technician, a good editor is, without doubt, much more than that. He or she is also a qualified storyteller of the highest order.

Film Editing Details

The cinematographer is literally the set ‘magician.’ DPs are responsible for the technological wizardry to help create the needed light, while at the same time also having the keen sensibility to shape the light for the greatest artistic effect.

The Film Scene in New York

The New York, New York Film Connection Film School Alternative

The New York City Film Connection Film School Advantage

1) Hundreds of Locations.

New York City is home to one of the world’s major film communities, but you don’t have to come here to go to our film school. The Film Connection has locations all over the United States. With our unique program, you can be apprenticed in film near your own hometown! Learn near where you live. Advantage: Film Connection.

2) Low Tuition Helps You Graduate Debt Free.

Why on earth would you want to go tens of thousands of dollars into debt for film school? That’s one of the quickest ways to kill your career before it starts. The Film Connection has devised a way to keep our tuition rates low, so you can get a world-class film education and still graduate with little or no debt. Other schools not only cost more, they have lots of add-on charges. Advantage: Film Connection.

3) Learn On-the-Job, Not In a Classroom.

The best way to learn film (whether producing, directing, editing or screenwriting) is to partake in the filmmaking process, not by sitting in some stale classroom. With our mentor-apprentice (extern) approach, you’ll be placed as an apprentice (extern) in a real New York City film production company, where all your classes will take place on-the-job and on the set. Real-world experience, not useless theoretical classroom instruction. Advantage: Film Connection.

4) Learn One-on-One From a Real Film Pro.

Not only do you learn on-the-job with our program: you also learn one-on-one from a seasoned film professional, someone with actual film credits, years of experience and lots of connections. This person will become your mentor, teaching you everything there is to know about film within your chosen discipline (whether film editing, film producing, directing, screenwriting, etc.). One teacher to one student. Advantage: Film Connection.

5) Recommended by Hundreds of Pros.

The Film Connection has been endorsed by hundreds of high-level film professionals. These pros endorse and recommend us because they know we are your best gateway into the film industry. More professional endorsements than any other film school. Advantage: Film Connection.

6) Job Placement Assistance.

When you graduate our program, you won’t be handed a cold-call list of job openings and wished “good luck.” We take an active role in job placement for all our students by offering up to 12 months of job placement assistance after graduation. If you don’t get hired right out of our program, we’ll leverage our connections to help you find work. “Job placement” at other schools means handing you a cold-call lead list when you graduate. Advantage: Film Connection.

7) On the Inside Track From Day One

One of the biggest challenges for film school graduates is getting “inside” the industry. With the Film Connection, you don’t even have to wait until you graduate—you’re “in the door” from your very first day of training! The other guys are on the outside, looking in. Advantage: Film Connection.

8) Unlimited Free Tutoring.

We offer free, unlimited tutoring to all our students. No more worrying about getting stuck with an assignment; we’ll help you through it. Unlimited free tutoring. Advantage: Film Connection.

9) Industry Connections.

In the film industry, connections are key. Your skills alone will get you nowhere without connections. As a film apprentice (extern) working on-the-job, you get the chance to make connections with real industry pros—connections you’d never make sitting in some classroom. Real world film industry connections. Big Advantage: Film Connection.

10) The Path To Hollywood

If you want to forge a career in the New York film scene—trust us, you’ll find plenty to keep you busy. If you want to take your skills to Hollywood, though—we’ve got you covered there, too. With our curriculum, you’ll develop your own film idea from concept to completion, and when you’re ready, we’ll arrange for you to PITCH YOUR FILM in Los Angeles in front of real film industry executives! A real chance to break into Hollywood. Big Advantage: Film Connection. NO OTHER FILM SCHOOL DOES THIS.

Your NEW YORK, NEW YORK FILM SCHOOL ALTERNATIVE

While there are many New York Film Schools to choose from, there is only one that gets you inside an actual New York film production company, where you will work as a film student apprentice (extern) while you learn directing, producing, editing, camera, screenwriting or general production. Make no mistake, the smartest way to break into the film business in New York is to start as a film apprentice (extern) inside a New York film production company–and that’s where the New York FILM CONNECTION has the advantage. Don’t make the mistake of spending 10-50 thousand dollars to go to film school at a college or film trade school when you can learn filmmaking in a real production company for far less money. Play it smart–learn directly from the pros, and make vital industry contacts while you get a real-world education in film. Hands down, our film school alternative is the smartest, most cost efficient film school available today. To APPLY for our New York Film School, click here. NEW YORK, NEW YORK is the largest DMA in the U.S. If Los Angeles is the Entertainment Capital of the country, New York is its Media Center.

This city also has a long-standing love affair with sports, supporting two MLB teams (Yankees and Mets), two NFL teams (Giants and Jets), two NBA teams (Knicks and Nets) and a hockey team (Rangers).

By pairing you with a real film professional in a real film production company, we give you the chance to learn on-the-job and on the set while making valuable connections for the future.
