The COVID-19 pandemic has prompted FilmNorth to convert as many of our originally scheduled spring classes as possible to an online format that will utilize the free Zoom meeting application. We’ve also added some exciting new courses, including Introduction to Final Cut Pro X and World Cinema Immersion.

During the COVID-19 crisis, we recognize that finances are stretched thin for many of us. For our new Spring Online Classes, we are

  • offering reduced tuition (our lowest rates ever!)
  • providing discounted member rates to everyone
  • offering low-income rates

In addition, if any of our advertised rates are beyond your means right now, please contact Education Director Reilly Tillman for more info.
