Welcome to PIFA, the producer’s film school, offering 4-week intensive filmmaking workshops that put 8 students in the driver’s seat, each walking away from their investment with a high-quality short film. Students write, direct and edit their own films to be presented here at PIFA’s monthly film festival - a community event at PIFA KINO, our own art-house cinema. We guide each student’s film from script to screen, providing valuable instruction along the way in cinematography, screenwriting, directing, (including workshops in casting and directing actors), producing, sound design plus all facets of post-production. You’ll gain the hands-on experience of being thrown into the fire, in a disciplined, high-energy environment, and complete your film on budget within a strict timeframe - a total immersion into all areas of production, including editing, sound design, musical score & post-color to ensure your film's successful presentation at the end of the course.
