Students Learn the Art of Filmmaking
2/6/12 -Tampa, FL - The first India International Film Festival of Tampa's first ever film school was a huge success! IIFF Tampa is proud to be the first South Asian Film Festival in the country to launch an independent film school for aspiring filmmakers.
The two-day event provided students with hands-on training with high quality equipment, while honing their craft through one-on-one lessons from some of the most experienced film professionals in the Bay area. The instructors covered a wide range of topics including screenwriting, acting, pre-production, sound, lighting and camera operation. Most importantly, the students had a chance to produce their own short films which debut at this year's film festival. Thank you to everyone who help us kick off this great new initiative. We were also featured on Fox 13's "What's Right With Tampa Bay" segment.
