The Southern Film Institute was established with the goal of equipping students with the practical knowledge and technical skills to thrive in an increasingly competitive, global industry.


The Southern Film Institute aims to provide students with a tangible skill set that can be applied in any circumstance as well as provide value to every production they are involved in. Through the SFI, students will gain invaluable knowledge making them a key asset to any production they are hired on.


The SFI focuses on more than mechanical skills such as lighting, lensing, and cinematography. We place equal emphasis on the social elements of filmmaking such as the interdepartmental politics of every film set. Students will be armed with artistic skills in addition to political know-how for thriving in competitive, fast-paced environments.
