Most importantly, Springfield Film Connection will not only give you a world-class film education, but experience working on projects and hard-to-get industry contacts.

Traditional film schools are the biggest waste of money in the film biz. We’ve streamlined the process by bringing in local filmmakers to mentor our students and help get their foot in the door. You can select our 6-month film behind the scenes track that partners you with local industry pros or be a big shot and try our 8-month directors track. Our directors track has your local mentors guiding you through the writing, shooting, and editing process. Additonally, every student goes in with a dream mentor, an industry veteran located in Los Angeles. Get ready to pitch your project because we’ll be flying you out to L.A. during the last week of your studies to have your own Hollywood pitch meeting. Other film schools wish they could deliver this kind of access to its students.
