Our filmmaking program offers expert guidance in screenwriting, directing, producing, editing, cinematography and sound design. IAFT comprehensively teaches both the art and business of film. We believe in a hands-on approach, where filmmakers get behind the camera in the first few weeks, learning to use all of the gear. Every filmmaker, no matter what their final job, needs to understand and appreciate all aspects of filmmaking.
Our acting program was developed for working actors who wish to strengthen their skills and learn new techniques. Our courses offer experience in front of the camera, so students area able to review their performances and make adjustments. Led by mentors who work as actors, each course is designed to increase students’ comfort with new roles, cold readings, audition situations, and developing depth in their work.
