Your Delaware Film School Alternative

The Film Connection in Delaware offers you opportunities to connect to the film industry that other film schools can’t offer. As the only film school that actually places you in a real film production company as an apprentice (extern), we provide you with one-on-one training with a working film professional. You don’t learn in a classroom—you learn on-the job, and on the set of real productions. You don’t meet other film students—instead, you meet real industry professionals who can actually help move your career forward. It’s not just a chance to get a film education (although you certainly get that); it’s a chance to plug into the film industry itself.

What do you want to do in film? Do you want to write screenplays? Edit films? Be a cinematographer? A producer? Do you want to direct your own films in Hollywood? Whatever you dreams for a career in film, the Delaware Film Connection is the best place to start. Our on-the-job training gets in door of the industry, not after you graduate, but from your very first day of training. By the time you graduate, if you’ve played your cards right, you’re already an industry insider!

You might not think of Delaware as a connection point for the film industry, but it might surprise you to learn how many films and TV shows are shot on location here in Delaware. Here are just a few examples:

  • Dead Poets Society (1989)
  • Beloved (1998)
  • Addicted to Love (1997)
  • Easy Money (1983)
  • Clean and Sober (1988)
  • The Village (2004)
  • Failure to Launch (2006)
  • Insight (2013)
  • The West Wing (TV series, 1999)
  • Joan of Arcadia (TV series, 2003)

When major productions come to Delaware, they often rely on local talent—and of course, there are plenty of local projects that also need your skills. You can’t connect to these opportunities sitting in a film school classroom—you have to get on the set. That’s exactly where the Film Connection puts you!

Our program is fully accredited, and has received glowing endorsements from hundreds of industry professionals many of whom believe in us so much they choose to teach for us. Our structured curriculum can be tailored to your schedule, so you can fulfill your student apprenticeship (externship) part-time or full-time. Whatever your particular interest in film, we pair you with a mentor who specializes in that field, so you get the education you want while making the connections you need. We can tailor the curriculum to help you develop your own film idea, and when you’re ready to graduate, we’ll even arrange for you to pitch your film to actual Hollywood executives! NO other film school on the planet can offer this kind of opportunity.

Worried about the cost? Don’t be. Other film schools charge such high tuition rates that you’re almost guaranteed to be buried in debt before you even launch your film career. Our specialized approach is not only highly effective, but also extremely affordable—as in, 75% LESS than our competition—so you can graduate with little or no debt.

There’s no one better to train you than someone who is doing what you want to do for a living. That’s why the Delaware Film Connection is your ticket to breaking into the film industry. If you’re ready to get started, APPLY NOW FOR FREE.
