The Film Connection can help you make the most of these opportunities where other film schools can’t, because instead of stuffing you in a classroom, taking your money and shoving a useless diploma in your hand, we put you directly where the action is happening. By the time the other film school graduates start knocking on doors, you’ll already be an industry insider!

The Connecticut Film Connection is a school that trains students exclusively by placing them as working externs on-the-job. Our curriculum is adaptable to any level of interest or experience. Whether your interest is in screenwriting, cinematography, film editing or production, we can pair you with a mentor who specializes in your area of interest. If your dream is to make your own movies in the Los Angeles film industry, your mentor will guide you step by step through the process of developing your own film idea—and then when you graduate, we’ll arrange for you to pitch your film to ACTUAL HOLLYWOOD EXECUTIVES. (When we say your path to Hollywood starts in Connecticut, we mean just that.)

One of the biggest pitfalls for film students, and the one thing that can kill your career before it starts, is student debt. Well, we’ve got you covered there, too. While the other guys charge crazy tuition rates almost guaranteed to bury you in debt, we keep our costs low enough to charge you 75% LESS than most film schools charge. This gives you a fighting chance to launch a career in film without going deep into debt.

If you can learn film editing, cinematography, directing or screenwriting from a real film professional right near where you live—with the chance to pitch your film to Hollywood when you’re finished—for LESS MONEY than traditional film school…why would you consider going anywhere else? To learn more about how the Connecticut Film Connection can help launch your career, and to schedule a meeting with your future mentor, simply APPLY NOW FOR FREE.
