Your Savannah Film School Alternative

Want to learn what it takes to work behind the scenes in the Savannah filmmaking scene? Then hop aboard Savannah Film Connection. Select our 6-month track and you will be partnered up with working film professionals who will guide you and your education. These unique one-on-one relationships are the core of our program and will provide you with industry contacts that will make you attractive to any potential employers.

Our 8-month director program goes even further. Like the six-month track you get paired up with local mentors. But our director program also adds dream mentors to the mix. These are Los Angeles industry professionals who can really bring your project into the big leagues. Once you have your project in hand at the completion of the course, you will then be flown out to L.A. to meet with your dream mentors and hone your pitch. Then, in an opportunity that’s never been heard of before, you will get a chance to pitch your idea to an industry exec, someone who’s job it is to give the thumbs up or thumbs down to projects in Hollywood. Want to know how your project stacks up against the pros? Here’s your chance!
