The 40 Week Total Immersion Filmmaking Program is the destination for students who are ready to turn their aspirations into reality. The program provides a comprehensive foundation in all aspects of filmmaking. For ten intense months, students live, eat, breathe filmmaking - in class and on the set.
The faculties of the Carolina Film Institute, founded in 2008, includes production space, editing rooms, a screening room and classrooms. Our faculty are not only dedicated teachers but also experienced professionals in their fields. With a large inventory of equipment from 16mm film and HD digital cameras to non-linear computer editing labs, students have access to professional gear at every stage of the program.
Intimate class size, personal attention and a hands-on teaching approach are the hallmarks of the Total Immersion Filmmaking Program. At graduation, students have transformed their dreams and passion into a practical start to their career - an internship, a job in film or video, or a gig directing their first independent film. Intensity and practicality are at the heart of what we offer students in the 40 Week Total Immersion FIlmmaking Program.
