NFI’S SIGNATURE FILMMAKING DIPLOMA

Our Cinema Production Program totally immerses you in the filmmaking process. For nine months NFI students live, eat, and breathe film and how films get made.Our philosophy is to have students learn all the stages and roles involved in making a film. The best way to achieve that is by actually making films. Throughout this diploma program, students collaborate on various projects to create their own films. By the end of the program, students gain the necessary skills, invaluable connections, and the content for their very own professional demo reel.
