KANSAS FILM SCHOOL by Film Connection

Your Kansas Film School Alternative

Would you be surprised to learn that your pathway to Hollywood can begin in Kansas? It’s true, thanks to the unique opportunities offered by the Kansas Film Connection. We’re hands-down the best film school in the state, because we put you in direct contact with the film industry from the first day of your training. Instead of studying in a classroom, you’ll study on-the-job and on-the set. We place you as a working student apprentice (extern) inside a real film production company, where a seasoned film industry pro will train you one-on-one. Whether your dream is to become a cinematographer, a producer, a film editor or director—whether your passion lies in local production projects, indie films or even making movies in Hollywood—the Kansas Film Connection gets you closer to the action than any other film school can.

The best part is, you don’t have to relocate to Los Angeles to get started in a film industry career, because we can teach you right where you live! Do you doubt us? You’d be surprised at how many major motion pictures have been filmed in Kansas over the years.

Here are just a few of them:

  • Dances With Wolves (1990)
  • Terms of Endearment (1983)
  • Paper Moon (1973)
  • Picnic (1955)
  • Mars Attacks! (1996)
  • Twister (1989)
  • Friday Night Lights (2004)

In addition to these examples, Kansas has a thriving film scene of its own, with dozens of film festivals throughout the state—not to mention major TV productions like ABC Family’s “Switched At Birth” that regularly film here. Many of these productions rely on local talent, and by placing you as a working apprentice (extern) in a Kansas film production company, we give you the chance to make the industry connections that other film students simply never get.

Your mentor will guide you one-on-one through our film curriculum, and you’ll get plenty of hands-on experience working with your mentor on real film projects. Whatever your particular interest (whether production, cinematography, post-production, etc.), we have mentors that specialize in these areas who can show you the ropes. And if your goal is to break into Hollywood, we can help with that, too: your curriculum will guide you through the process of developing your own film idea, and then we’ll arrange for you to pitch your film actual Hollywood executives! (They don’t call us the “Film Connection” for nothing.)

Don’t be fooled by other film schools that charge you ridiculous tuition rates, forcing you into crushing student debt that could kill your career before it even starts. We’ll put you on-the-job from the very first day of your training—not one single day sitting in classroom—and we’ll charge you 75% LESS than the other guys. That way, you can focus on what’s important—your film career—rather than worrying about how you’re going to pay your debt.

The Kansas Film Connection is the only film school that pairs you with a working film professional for on-the-job training. We’re the only school that puts you in the film industry so you can make real industry connections while the other film school students are sitting in their classrooms. And we do it for a fraction of what the other film schools charge! What are you waiting for? If you’re serious about a film career, you owe it to yourself to check us out!
