A home for future filmmakers

The Cinema Academy exposes students to the cinema industry’s many possibilities through hands-on projects, interactions with Media School professors and discussions with professionals in the film business.

We connect students to the cinema industry, starting in high school and into postgraduation. We share industry knowledge, provide extracurricular opportunities, supplement artistic and technical skills, and connect students to alumni and industry professionals.

High school filmmakers can get test out film school through any of our four five-day summer programs: Animation, Digital Cinema Academy, Screenwriting and Super 8 Filmmaking. Train on industry-standard equipment, learn from industry professionals and college professors, and collaborate with peers.

Expert workshops

Our expert workshops connect IU students to professionals in the TV and film industry.
