    Overview

    Earn college credit through Sarah Lawrence College by taking part in the International Film Institute of New York (IFI) Summer Film Intesive at the Iona University campus. The program offers a unique opportunity to learn the art of filmmaking in an in-depth, supportive, and intimate program.

    The International Film Institute of New York is happy to offer you a unique opportunity to learn the art of filmmaking in an in-depth, supportive, and intimate program at Iona University. Gain hands-on experience and instruction in all aspects of filmmaking, focusing on four core elements:

    • Writing for the screen
    • Directing
    • Production
    • Post-production

    Lectures feature hands-on camera work, augmented by special guest speakers and behind-the-scenes visits to Manhattan production studios and editing facilities. After you shoot three film exercises focused on different filmmaking techniques, you’re ready to write, direct, produce, shoot, and edit your own short video.

    You choose the format: narrative, documentary, or experimental. You may choose to stick to a script with actors, costumes, and a controlled set, or you may approach your shoot with the spirit of improvisation. The final product is your completed short—to which you own the exclusive rights—ready for your professional portfolio, graduate school application, or Web distribution.

    The program takes place at Iona University also offering housing and meal plans for participants. You can also earn credits at Sarah Lawrence College, former site of the program.
