Your Quincy Film School Alternative

We’ve got a program that’s as strong as the Mighty Mississippi. We’re Quincy Film Connection and we’ve developed a network of production professionals to serve as mentors for our program and all you need to do is pick your path of study!

You can go the behind the scenes route. This program will pair you up with local mentors who will help you develop the area of filmmaking that most interests you.

For a more comprehensive program, try our directors route. This program is longer (8 months instead of 6) and will eventually put you and your idea front and center with a top Hollywood executive. Our sit-down meetings and subsequent feedback is something that not even the most seasoned Hollywood insiders get to see in their lifetimes. You will have a filmmaking experience that gives you real-world experience and industry contacts.

Quincy, Illinois is a river town and a border town, located in western Illinois along the Mighty Mississippi River. Quincy is part of a micropolis, a cluster of several area towns straddling the Mississippi, with a combined area population of over 100,000 people between Illinois and Missouri. Across the river lies Hannibal, Missouri, boyhood home of writer Mark Twain and the inspiration behind the books Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn. Beautiful countryside and access to big cities like Chicago and St. Louis make Quincy, Illinois a surprisingly convenient area for location filmmaking. If you want to be a film director, film producer, film editor or cameraman, Quincy is not as remote from the scene as you might think–especially with FILM CONNECTION helping you.

Among the film/television productions shot in Quincy and the surrounding regions include films like The Informant, The Silence of the Lambs and Mission: Impossible, as well as television shows such as Revolution 618 and the 2002 docmuentary Voices of the Veterans. 

With FILM CONNECTION's unique approach, you'll be placed with a working film or television pro in the Quincy area, one who serves as your mentor and instructor for the duration of our six-month course.
