Film Production Coalition

About Us

The Film Production Coalition (FPC) is an organization dedicated to collaboratively making short films every quarter in small production groups, in a variety of genres. We don’t require any experience and are committed to teaching members all aspects of film production from start to finish. 

We also host a quarterly festival that is used to exhibit the work of FPC in addition to content produced by other Student Media organizations and independent filmmakers.

My favorite part of filmmaking is collaborating with like-minded people and making a film that highlights our experiences, which we learn from. Then at the end of the day, this film becomes a mash-up of everyone's ideas, which I love with filmmaking.

My favorite part of filmmaking is the community you form. It's always rewarding to have a group of like-minded individuals who have ambition and passion for a story. Once that story finishes, the journey still continues.
