This one-week training is led by theatre, film & TV industry professionals, and ELA curriculum experts. Nearly 200 teachers from across the state of Georgia completed the training to this date.

In partnership with the Georgia Department of Education and Fayette County Schools, the Georgia Film Academy helped create Dramatic Writing for Film, Television, and Theatre I for the state of Georgia.
