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.
