The Georgia Film Consortium is now at Augusta University!
The Georgia Film Academy (GFA) supports the GFC, which is a unique-in-the-nation, state-wide collaboration of institutions of the University System of Georgia, Technical College System of Georgia and Independent institutions who offer professional courses in film, television, digital entertainment, Esports and game development.
The Georgia Film Academy is a professional organization, a unit of the University System of Georgia, which is committed to leading and advancing the entertainment arts industry and its workforce in Georgia. The GFA promotes rigorous professional training, and supports opportunities for union-covered film and television production craft internships and placement in creative industries, apprenticeships and jobs in an effort to build a permanent and sustainable industry in the state. On behalf of the USG, TCSG, and their institutions, as well as private higher education institutions in Georgia who choose to use its resources, the GFA is dedicated to the development of both Georgia’s workforce and the industry which will utilize it.

"[The internship program] is a way to break through that wall of entry. There are so many ways to do the job but I learned the right way to do it - an efficient way to mic up talent quickly; good boom operating skills; good mixing skills. A professional team took me under their wing and taught me everything, and catapulted me forward. I learned a whole bunch from them."
Moses Conrad Norman
"I really cannot thank GFA enough for everything they've done for me. Looking back over my film career, I can source every job back to GFA."

"The great thing about GFA is that they give you the tools and a path into the industry. They usher you in there and say ‘take what you've learned, use it, but also continue to learn.’ I don't see any other way I could have gotten into the industry."

"Just being able to work behind the scenes and on the stages was amazing - like a dream come true,"
