Making a film is a herculean endeavor. There are many creative challenges—honing your vision, finding resources, bringing out the best in your team, staying the course. Filmshop is a community that makes the process much less solitary. When you go through similar challenges with fellow filmmakers, it makes the impossible that much less daunting. When you can ask a diverse community of working cinematographers, editors, writers, and directors to pitch in to your project, somehow financial, creative, and emotional challenges dissolve.
We make films happen.
Founded in 2009, Filmshop is a nonprofit collective of independent filmmakers committed to developing new work through peer support and collaboration. Chapters in Brooklyn, Manhattan, and New Orleans meet weekly to workshop projects, offer constructive critique, and incubate new ideas.
