A no-holds barred, rapid-fire weekend course

"I took Dov's class, Shot 'Reservoir Dogs' and 'Pulp Fiction' and launched my career as a writer who controls his scripts."


(Director of Kill Bill, Pulp Fiction, Django Unchained)

Orson Welles once said 'Everything you need to know about filmmaking can be learned in three days' - but Dov Simens amazingly does it in two!

In this age of low-cost digital cameras, easy to use post-production software applications and an endless array of global distribution platforms, digital filmmaking is more accessible than ever before and with Dov's guidance, you'll be able to take your filmmaking career to the next level in next to no time!

Dov Simens is the founder of 'Hollywood Film Institute' and since the early 90s, he has been presenting the 'Hollywood Institute's 2-Day Film School' - a two day no-holds barred, rapid-fire practical filmmaking course.

Attendees of this world-renowned course include Quentin Tarantino, Spike Lee, Kevin Smith and Guy Ritchie.

This Autumn, Dov is coming to Sydney and Melbourne and invites both Australian industry professionals and newcomers to partake in the 'Hollywood Institute's 2-Day Film School'.

The course offers quick, practical advice on how to launch your filmmaking career and is taught in an energetic and interactive environment.

This is a rare opportunity to learn from Dov, who will draw from his wealth of experience and insider knowledge.
