About 99 Minute Film School

Of course, we can’t teach you everything there is to know about filmmaking in 99 minutes, but you’d be surprised how much you can learn about making films and the film industry in just a single evening. The 99 minute film school will run through the core essentials you will need to make a film and create a plan to launch your career, with dozens of tangible tips on everything from sourcing your film crew, marketing your film and finding work on film sets.

What will it cover?

By the end of the class, you have an introductory understanding of:

  • Finding a viable script
  • Sourcing cast and crew
  • Shooting tips
  • Getting your film seen
  • Social media basics for filmmakers
  • The career ladder
  • Distribution and exhibition
  • Money and how to get paid

Who is it for?

99 Minute Film School is suitable for people new to filmmaking, as well as those with some knowledge and experience looking to gain a better understanding of working in the film industry.
