The AFI Backlot is a platform exclusive to the AFI community — a network designed to support alumni networking and professional development.
Through the AFI Backlot, alumni have access to:
Connections: Get to know other alumni or become reacquainted with old friends. Search for your peers by location, company, experience, etc. Join a group based on your class year or discipline, or create your own group within the AFI community.
Resources: Access aggregated resources and relevant filmmaking articles. Share useful tools with fellow alumni.
Events: Be up-to-date on everything happening at AFI, and add your own events, film screenings and crowdfunding campaigns.
Jobs: Access thousands of job listings, including those that arrive straight to the AFI offices and available exclusively on the Backlot. Need to hire AFI interns or alumni for a project? Upload jobs directly to the database.
Mentorships: Become a mentor to a current Fellow and help guide someone’s unique experience at AFI. Or further utilize the network to find a mentor for yourself, no matter where you are on your career path.
