Quality Filmmaking Education:


- Hands-On Training
At IAFT, we do not believe in pointless artistic endeavors, boring lectures and mindless exercises that keep you from doing what you want to do: creating your work. You learn best by actually doing, and we embrace this hands-on concept wholeheartedly.

- Individual Attention
We feature some of the smallest class sizes in the filmmaking industry. We are a boutique film school for artists who want to learn how to create, not socialize. Smaller class sizes means you have more individual, one-on-one attention from your mentors and instructors.

- Develop Your Artistic Skill
This is not just a training seminar, full of technical knowledge and 'how-to's'. This is a creative relationship that aims to develop your technical and artistic skills with proven professional mentors and coaches.

Our History:

Founded in 2004, the International Academy of Film and Television (IAFT) began its journey of affordable, top-quality filmmaking instruction on the beautiful tropical island of Cebu, Philippines. IAFT has since introduced filmmaking techniques straight from Hollywood to its students across the globe, through the experienced hands of industry veterans.
