THE FLORENCE INTERNATIONAL FILM SCHOOL TEACHES YOU EVERY ASPECT OF PROFESSIONAL FILM PRODUCTION
Our programs are dedicated to the development of the inner artist and the creative process as a means of self growth and spiritual exploration. We believe the creative process can not be separated from the psyche of the human but is an intimate part of the human. We celebrate this infinite human spirit and seek to incorporate its highest essence into the emerging technological renaissance. We do this by incorporating experiences such as : Meditation, Yoga, Creative Visualization, Transformational Art, Creative Storytelling, Jungian Archetypical Imagery, Dream Interpretation and Symbology. We also offer an Art Residency Program whose focus is t help artist create from their soul, touching the souls of their audience. We are highly selective and seek only those students who are passionate about creating Conscious Media.
In the culturally rich and inspirational environment of Florence, the Italian culture and the Renaissance we work with our students to allow each student to increase their palette of creative tools, depth and eclectic artistry into their creative work. Just as the esoteric Renaissance fueled the creative art work of the great artists, writers, architects and musicians we hope to create that same connection between Art and Creative Spirit.
