We are Nashville's Film School.

Are you ready to become a filmmaker?


Our Mission:

To Train Students for careers in the film industry.

I wanted to turn my childhood dreams into a sustainable living, and that’s where I found Nashville Film Institute...
— Tyler Whitaker, NFI Alumni

We believe in the Filmmaker.

Nashville Film Institute's filmmaking diploma course is fast-paced, focused on the filmmaker, and teaches every commercial application of the moving image. We believe that communication is an art form, and that in order for artists to best project their ideas onto the screen, they need to know the filmmaking technology, business, and techniques involved in the entire film production process.

At the NFI film school, we want to help you share your beliefs, your style, and your stories with the world. We want you to tell your stories. The curriculum is for people who want to roll up their sleeves, work hard, and quickly get to work behind the camera and in the editing room.


Classes start soon. Inquire today.
