Georgia Film Academy

The Georgia Film Academy (GFA) is a collaboration of the University System of Georgia and the Technical College System of Georgia created by state leadership to meet education and workforce needs for high-demand careers in Georgia’s film and creative industries. The GFA higher education program offers rigorous professional training and may lead to union-covered film and television production craft internships and placement in creative industries apprenticeships and jobs.

The GFA is a unique-in-the-nation, statewide effort which provides students with:

  • Multi-disciplinary training by professionals in the film, TV, and new media industries
  • In-classroom course work coupled with on-set, hands-on training
  • Hands-on instruction and training working with a package of professional equipment (cameras, sound gear, lights, etc.) as well as production trucks, generators, and sound studio space
  • Opportunity to work on “real world” projects in order to develop recognized film credits, through partnerships with professional productions
  • One-on-one job counseling to include resume preparation, job research, and job placement outreach
