"Movies have always been one of my biggest interests. Many weekend nights, after school evenings, and summer days while I was growing up, I could be found watching films. My friends always knew me as the guy who could quote or impersonate most anything from the cinema world. After high school and a year of college, I joined the U.S Army.

Student Voice: Kappel Cloninger"Nashville Film Institute has prepared me to make movies. There is no better way to say it. We are well underway of preproduction on our short film, Tandem, and it's going to take a lot of us to make it happen. The cool thing about NFI is that we all learn to work together and this project would not happen by myself. This is an ambitious student film that will test everything we have learned here at NFI. We are still raising funds for the film so feel free to check out our IndieGoGo site!
We Believe in the Filmmaker
The NFI Filmmaking diploma course is fast-paced, focused on the filmmaker, and teaches every commercial application of the moving image. We believe that communication is an Art form, and that in order for artists to best project their ideas onto the screen, they need to know the filmmaking technology, business, and techniques involved in the entire entire film production process.
At the NFI film school, we want to help you share your beliefs, your style, and your stories with the world... we want you to tell your stories. The NFI film program is fast-tracked – designed so you learn and start making films quickly. The curriculum is for people who want to roll up their sleeves, work hard, and quickly get to work behind the camera and in the editing room.
