Your Spokane Film School Alternative

Do you have a brilliant idea for a movie? Do just need a little bit of help getting your idea polished?

Spokane Film Connection Film School has everything you need.

The Film Connection pairs you with industry professionals who are currently working in the genre you want to working in. They help you through every step of the creative process.

We will team you up with a Hollywood screenwriter who will help you form your idea into a feature length screenplay. We will also introduce you to an editor, who will help you assemble the footage that you shoot, and two mentors to guide you through the creative process.

By the time you’re done with our program you’ll have a finished screenplay, two fully produced scenes, and a trailer for your feature film. And the best part? The last step of our program is that you’ll sit down with a real studio exec and pitch him your movie.

Pretty astounding, right? Yeah. Pretty astounding.

Located in eastern Washington not far from the Idaho border, Spokane is home to around 208,000 people, anchoring a metro area of nearly three times that population. Entertainment professionals and celebrities with ties to this area include comedienne Julia Sweeney, crooner/actor Bing Crosby, and actors Craig T. Nelson, Hilary Swank and Dyan Cannon. Spokane not only offers urban backdrops for location filming, but is also in driving distance to a number of natural features including mountains, lakes, forests and rivers. Spokane also benefits from generous incentives offered by the state of Washington for filmmakers, including rebates of up to 30 percent for expenditures.

Major movies, commercials, TV shows and documentaries are filmed throughout Washington state on a regular basis, including in and around Spokane. Some of the movies that have done location filming here include The Joneses, Benny & Joon, Knockaround Guys, Smoke Signals, Vision Quest and Lonely Hearts, just to name a few. Whether your interest is in film producing, film directing, post-production, lighting or otherwise, Spokane offers more opportunities than you might think–and FILM CONNECTION can get you close to the action in ways other film schools can’t.
