Your Terre Haute Film School Alternative

Film Schools are an expensive waste of time and money, right? Right. Well, traditional film schools, anyway.

Terre Haute Film Connection Film School is anything but traditional. It’s a film school, yes. But it’s more than that. It’s a gateway.

Terre Haute Film Connection pairs you up with mentors who are currently doing exactly what you want to be doing. Do you want to be a writer/director? Do you want to be an editor? Or a Producer? Or a camera operator? Well, the Film Connection has all of the connections to make that happen.

You’ll walk away from our program with connections in every area of the industry. You’ll be taken on-location, assist with shooting, and filming the ideas that you’ve been thinking about forever.

The Film Connection will pair you with a screenwriter, editor, and two different mentors to help guide you.

By the end of the program you’ll be well on you way to a career in the film industry.

Located on the west side of Indiana along the Wabash River, near the border with Illinois, the town of Terre Haute hosts nearly 60,000 people. Despite its size, Terre Haute has been home to several entertainment industry pros, including actor-musician Burl Ives, actors Dave Madden and Jerry Van Dyke, and producer/director Grover Jones. Besides being home to local film or television production companies, Terre Haute is within driving distance to both Chicago and Indianapolis, making it a viable alternative location for getting a film school education as opposed to relocating elsewhere.  If you are considering a career in filmmaking as a film director, film producer, film editor, or cameraman, FILM CONNECTION can help you get started right in Terre Haute.

Many major movies, commercials, TV shows and documentaries are filmed all over Indiana, including in and near Terre Haute.  Some examples of films shot in this region include Hoosiers, Public Enemies, A League of Their Own, Rudy, and Eight Men Out, just to name a few.
