Welcome to the Harlem Film Institute
The Harlem Film Institute was founded in 1997 and has been providing quality film and video productions, as well as educational products to the public ever since. Located in New York and Virginia, the Harlem Film Institute plans to continue to educate and produce awesome productions throughout the World.
HFI was born in Harlem U.S.A. at 269 West 153rd Street. The mission of HFI is to develop and expand a knowledge and appreciation of the fine art of Film and Video production among youth and adults while exploring the field of Motion picture production as a viable career opportunity. With media literacy workshops in New York and Richmond, Virginia, HFI has taught over 500 young people and adults and looks to expand our reach in the coming years. We look to expand our partnership with Museums and Educational institutes assisting as they develop new digital technologies.
In 2009, HFI expanded its community outreach programs to include revenue-generating programs which offer students an opportunity to put their Film and Video talents to work for community organizations. HFI has also partnered with National Motion picture and Documentary productions. In 1999, HFI started an annual Film Festival to spotlight the talent of its student as well as the growing community of independent Filmmakers.
