Film Arts Foundation

Film Arts Foundation (Film Arts) is a non-profit leader in the media arts field, providing comprehensive training, equipment, information, consultations, and exhibition opportunities to independent filmmakers. Now in its thirtieth year, Film Arts has close to 3,000 members working in film, video, and multimedia, and is the largest regional organization of independent producers in the country.

Film Arts Education Department prides itself on offering classes that encompass the entire breadth of the filmmaking experience. From semester-length classes in screenwriting, digital production, 16mm, and sound design to evening and weekend classes on essential topics such as working with actors, art direction, hand-processing and setting up business structures for your film, the Education Department offers a schedule more comprehensive than many university film programs.

Our classes and workshops reflect standard curriculums in filmmaking: Production, Post-Production, Screenwriting, Producing, Documentary, Experimental, Professional Development, Media Activism and Masters Classes For Experienced Makers.

Classes are typically offered in progression, allowing students to move from beginning to advanced topics in a logical fashion.

Our passionate teaching staff, comprised of award-winning filmmakers, industry professionals and guest speakers from around the country teach multiple classes through out the year.

In the spirit of true independence, we encourage students to take classes from our diverse catalogue, mixing and matching ideas, styles and methods of filmmaking to create exciting films and fresh voices.
