Your Orlando-Daytona Beach-Melbourne Film School Alternative

Orlando Film Connection provides what overpriced traditional film programs won’t: industry contacts that will bypass the years of having to knock on doors that won’t open for you. Because the truth is that no one in the film industry hires anybody for their diploma. Employers want real-world experience and no other film school puts you right in the action like Orlando Film Connection.

Start with our 6-month program if you feel that behind the scenes is your calling. You’ll be paired up with filmmaking professionals who will guide your personal project and give you that hard-to-get toehold in the industry. And if you’re looking for a fully immersive film education, then try the 8-month directors track. Working with your local mentors, you will write, direct, and edit your project. You will also be working closely with a dream mentor who’s located in Los Angeles. Through regular online meetings, you will fashion a pitch for your project and get to present it during the last week of your studies in L.A!
