Learn Film Production Close to Home with a Florida Film Industry Insider

In recent years, Florida has become a major hub for film and television production, thanks in part to several major studios opening up shop here.


  • Edward Scissorhands (1990)
  • Scarface (1983)
  • The Waterboy (1998)
  • There’s Something About Mary (1998)
  • Armegeddon (1998)
  • Ocean’s Eleven (2001)
  • 2 Fast 2 Furious (2003)
  • Dexter (TV Series, 2006)
  • Iron Man 3 (2013)

You can see just from these few examples that there are lots of opportunities to make industry connections right here in Florida—and by putting you in the heart of the action as a working extern, the Film Connection can put you in touch with these opportunities like no other film school can. We have mentors available in Miami, Orlando, Pensacola, Tallahassee, Tampa, Jacksonville, and many other cities throughout Florida, so you can learn where you live without having to relocate—unless, of course, you want to.

Our film training program can be tailored to your personal goals and interests. If you want to be a screenwriter, we can pair you with a professional screenwriter. If you want to be an editor, we pair you with an editor. If you want to direct films in Hollywood, we pair you with a filmmaker who guides you step-by-step in the development of your own film idea—and when you graduate, we arrange for you to pitch your film to REAL HOLLYWOOD EXECUTIVES! Can you name one other film school that does this? (Answer: you can’t. We’re the only one.)

For all these benefits, one of the greatest advantages of the Film Connection is the low cost. We know that student debt can crush your dreams, so we’ve designed our program to cost about 75% LESS than the other guys. That’s right: learn on-the-job, get connected to the film industry, and pay a low, fair tuition rate that won’t bury you in student debt. How can you beat that?

The Florida Film Connection does more than just teach you the elements of filmmaking: we provide you a direct connection to the industry itself, by training you from inside the industry from the first day of your program to the day you graduate. Are you ready to get started on your film career?
