The Indie Films Foundation (IFF) helps introduce new students to the film and television industry through our film school which includes hands on experience, helping to produce real films each year, written, directed and produced by the IFF.
The Indie Film Foundation (IFF) seeks to support the aspirations of indie film makers, helping to educate them in the art and science of film making, and support them throughout their careers. The IFF seeks to influence the art of filmmaking, in the classroom and on the set. The goal is to teach students how to make films with production values that meet or excel industry standards and to further inspire their careers in the film industry. We believe in producing films, that reach out and touch people; films that inform, educate and provide insight into the human condition.
The IFF was founded by Gary Parker and Bruce May who have worked in film, television and digital media for over forty years. They support the goals of individuals seeking to begin or further a career in the film and television industry. Both are instructors at IFF and they also produce, write and direct the indie films produced by the IFF.
