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 test out film school at IU through any of our 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 while staying on IU Bloomington’s beautiful campus.
Our expert workshops connect IU students to professionals in the TV and film industry.
We showcase the top student-produced films at an annual film festival at IU Cinema each spring.
