ALL FILM. ALL DAY.

Nashville Film Institute is creating filmmakers – all day, every day.

We believe in getting our students totally immersed in the film industry and eliminating distractions. We provide the fast track, avoiding unrelated topics and useless credit hours. We get our students out of the traditional classroom, in the field, on set, and behind the camera. It’s hands-on creativity every single day.
