Spring Classes to be Held Online

The COVID-19 pandemic has prompted FilmNorth to convert as many of our originally scheduled spring classes as possible to an ONLINE format utilizing the free Zoom meeting application. We’ve also added some exciting new courses, such as Introduction to Final Cut Pro X and World Cinema Immersion, and are offering reduced tuition (lowest rates ever!). More info here.


COVID-19 Resources for Artists

Please visit Springboard for the Arts for the most comprehensive, up-to-date artists resources and opportunities during COVID-19.

Although FilmNorth had a few dozen resources displayed here for the past several weeks, it was too challenging to keep it current and ensure as many existing resources as possible were being listed. We thank Springboard for providing information for all artists.
