GI Bill at the NFI

At Nashville Film Institute, we help veterans build careers in the film industry. Our team of instructors, students, alumni, and community partners, provides a support system that empowers veterans to realize their career goals. Our 9-month, hands-on program gives our students a clear mission and puts them both in the field and in action. 


Use the GI Bill to Start Your Career as a Filmmaker

The GI Bill can cover both living expenses and the cost of tuition, which includes a Macbook Pro that remains the student's to keep. The NFI program is approved by the Tennessee State Agency for training veterans and their eligible dependents. Our program is Post 9/11 GI Bill and Vocational Rehab eligible for those who qualify.

NFI offered me a support system of students and instructors to help me pursue what I want to do.
