High Noon Productions
High Noon Productions

We offer several types of continuing education and hands on experience for filmmakers, students, and anyone interested in film, television, digital media, and animation.  Through local partnerships, we offer workshops, panels, networking events, and intensive classes.

Filmmaker Focus
Colorado’s filmmaking scene continues to grow at an unprecedented pace. More often than not, filmmakers are choosing to stay and work in the state rather than moving to Los Angeles or New York. The Filmmaker Focus is a partnership between the Denver Film Society and the Colorado Film & Video Association. The Filmmaker Focus series offers educational panels, networking events, fiscal sponsorship opportunities and grants available for Colorado-based productions to ensure a thriving local film scene. For tickets and event information, visit DenverFilm.org.

Screenplay Reviews
Colorado residents only can submit an original screenplay, television pilot, or short script for free. Each script is assigned to a Colorado screenwriter or screenwriting professor who provides detailed notes and suggestions.

Education Grants
We work with local film schools and high schools to provide production grants to help offer hands on production experience.  Through the grant, schools produce an original documentary over one semester that will air on public television. To apply or obtain further information, email Kelly Baug at kelly.baug@state.co.us. The Education Grant Application is offered to all Institutions.
