RHODE ISLAND FILM SCHOOL by Film Connection

Your Rhode Island Film School Alternative

The Rhode Island Film Connection offers opportunities to connect to the REAL film industry that you won’t find in any other film school. How do we do it? By keeping you out of the classroom entirely, and placing you instead as a working film apprentice (extern) inside a real film production company.  Imagine learning the arts of cinematography, screenwriting, editing, producing and directing by going to class on-the-job and on the set!  Imagine learning the ropes from a real filmmaker on real film productions, not from a career instructor in a college or trade school classroom.  There’s simply no better way to connect to the film industry than to learn from inside it, and that’s where we put you, from day one.

For being the smallest state in the union, Rhode Island certainly sees more than its fair share of film industry activity.

Here’s a partial list of a few major film productions that have done location shooting here in Rhode Island:

  • Amistad (1997)
  • 27 Dresses (2008)
  • Meet Joe Black (1998)
  • Mystic Pizza (1988)
  • The Great Gatsby (1974)
  • High Society (1956)
  • Dan In Real Life (2007)
  • Me, Myself & Irene (2000)
  • There’s Something About Mary (1998)
  • Moonrise Kingdom (2012)

As you can see, you don’t have to start a film career with a move to Hollywood when there are plenty of opportunities to get connected to the film industry right here in Rhode Island. By placing you as an apprentice (extern) in a real film production company, the Rhode Island Film Connection can get you closer to the action than any other film school can.

Our film training program can be adapted to your particular interests in film (whether producing, editing, screenwriting, cinematography, directing, etc.), and we’ll pair you with a mentor who specializes in your chosen field.  You’ll have a structured curriculum, complete with homework, but the real benefit you’ll receive comes from lots of hands-on training as you learn one-on-on from your mentor.  If you’ve got your eye on the Hollywood film industry, we can help you get there, too.  Your mentor will guide you step-by-step through the development of your own film idea from concept to completion, and then we’ll arrange a meeting in Los Angeles for you to pitch your film to actual film industry executives!  This is an opportunity you won’t find in any other film school.

How much do you think it costs to receive on-the-job film training from a real filmmaker? Well, that’s the surprising part: apprenticeship (externship) training is actually the most cost-efficient way to teach you!  We don’t want to load you down with student debt right when you’re trying to launch a career in film, so we keep your costs remarkably low—in fact, about 75% LESS than the other film schools charge!

It’s time to make some decisions for your future.  Are you serious about a career in film?  If you are, you need to be smart about how you receive your training, and how much you pay for it.  You need to get connected to the industry and stay out of debt.  No other film school in the world offers the kind of opportunity we offer.  You owe it to yourself to find out what the Rhode Island Film Connection can do for your career!
