Learn at RFI

RFI is a completely-online international screenwriting conservatory. We serve students all over the world, regardless of experience, background, and geographical location. We think film is for everyone and should reflect everyone. Likewise, we believe a robust screenwriting education should be accessible to anyone willing to learn the craft. 

In order to accommodate our global learning community, courses at RFI are built to be versatile. We want to provide a learning experience that fits the unique voice of every storyteller who comes our way. 

To give students maximum flexibility in choosing the kind and pace of education that makes the most sense for them, instruction at RFI is divided into two tiers: On Demand and Monthly Membership.

On Demand

For seasoned screenwriters and industry professionals looking to strengthen existing skills, pick up new skills quickly, or jumpstart their writing, we also offer RFI courses on demand. All lessons are pre-recorded and become accessible at the beginning of each semester.

On Demand courses offer instruction only. There is no live teacher-student interaction or community engagement with on demand courses. Coursework delivered on demand is for motivated, independent learners who want to get the most out of a screenwriting education on their own time, at their own pace. 

Please note, not all classes offered at RFI are offered on demand. Please see the list below for available on demand classes and pricing:
