The International Film Institute of New York (IFI) offer a unique opportunity to learn the art of filmmaking in an in-depth, supportive, and intimate program at Iona College.
The focus of this five-week in-person intensive is on storytelling and developing the skill sets necessary to translate the written page onto the screen. This is the backbone of the program, in which every student will have the opportunity to produce and direct their own four- to six-minute finished project. Along the way, technical aspects necessary to produce a final film—everything from discussions on operating cameras, to setting up lights, to capturing sound will be covered. Enjoy small sized classrooms with instructors that will give you the attention needed to excel.
