Do you wish you could write and direct the films you catch at the movie theater? Is your DVR at its limit, full of great TV shows that you want to star in? Are your favorite websites packed with videos you wish you made yourself? Well, what are you waiting for?

The International Academy of Film and Television is here to help you turn your dreams of being an actors and filmmaker into a reality. IAFT has been helping aspiring filmmakers find their place in the film and television industry since 2004. Our industry-experienced mentors will help you learn exactly what you need to know to help start your career.



You could go to a 4-year college to study, but what for? Entertainment is not a degree-driven industry. What you need are the right skills to enter the workforce.

Let’s face facts…This business is a tough place to build a career and anyone that tells you different is not telling you the truth. It takes a lot more than just ambition and motivation. Inspiration and a creative imagination will only take you so far…

To build a career in the entertainment industry, either in front of the camera or behind it, you need to master your craft. You need to have the right skills. When you step into the marketplace, you need to know your stuff!

IAFT is here to help you learn exactly what you need to know to start building your dream career. Whether your passion is screenwriting, directing, shooting, or editing, by the time you graduate, you will have the skills and knowledge necessary to succeed in the television and film industries.

In today’s world, there are countless opportunities outside of a just traditional filmmaking and we believe strongly in giving you opportunities to put your skills into practice. Those in our diploma filmmaking program have the opportunity to make two short films; a new media project such as a webisode, music video, PSA, commercial or documentary; and a thesis film over the course of ten months. Our “learn-by-doing” approach helps students work together on film projects to begin building your experience right away!

From viral videos to feature films, knowing how to visually tell a story is the key to success. At IAFT, all our mentors all have the industry experience to understand what you need to know – and they have the skills to teach it.

Since 2004, IAFT has been helping aspiring moviemakers and actors find their place in the film industry.  First founded in Cebu, Philippines, IAFT has produced hundreds of internationally acclaimed filmmakers across the regions.
