DCTV is not just a learning center. We are a home-base dedicated to cultivating and supporting an expanding community of aspiring, emerging and established filmmakers. Independent filmmaking is an ever-evolving craft that requires storytellers to be up to date on the latest technology and techniques. We are here to support you.

Instead of talking, we’re doing.

DCTV Workshops provide people from all walks of life access to the skills they need to make media and tell their story. Offering over 150 affordable, hands-on workshops each year in all aspects of digital filmmaking and media arts, from basic video production to advanced editing to web design and motion graphics, DCTV is a one-of-a-kind training facility that offers practical knowledge to everyone.

Here's how:

Just Bring Yourself

Unlike other centers, we provide the space and the gear, from high-end computers and software, to the professional production equipment that freelancers rely on most. All you need to bring is yourself.

Get Your Hands Dirty

Our workshops are always small in size so you’re never lost in a crowd. If your workshop is computer-based, you work at your own iMac. If it’s equipment-based, we’re committed to a 2:1 student to camera ratio. And if it’s discussion-based, you’ll share ideas and get the personalized feedback you need.

Work With Great People

Whoever you are and whatever you’re looking for - whether it’s a career change, a new hobby, or another skill to add to your professional repertoire - there’s a place for you here. Our Instructors are not staunch professors. Highly informed yet down-to-earth, our instructors bring the tips + tricks they gain while out in the field to supplement our industry-standard curriculum.

You Don’t Have To Stop Everything

With workshops taking place on weeknights or weekends, some only three hours long, you can gain a wealth of information in a short amount of time. And with consistently low prices, and a convenient location in Chinatown/Tribeca, you don’t have to stop your life to pick up a new skill.
