In-person classes will be held at FilmNorth, 550 Vandalia Street, Suite 120, Saint Paul, MN 55114.

In-Person Classes: Proof of Vaccination & Masks Required 
In order to participate in any in-person FilmNorth class or workshop this fall, participants (students and instructors) will be required to show proof of full Covid-19 vaccination at the start of the first session and wear masks at all times inside the FilmNorth facility. FilmNorth staff is fully vaccinated. We thank you for helping keep FilmNorth and our community safe! Be advised that certain in-person classes may switch to online where possible should Covid circumstances necessitate.

Online Classes
Participation in FilmNorth online classes requires use of the free Zoom cloud-based video conferencing service. For optimal performance we recommend that you install Zoom on your computer rather than running it from a web browser. We will e-mail students a course reminder and Zoom link a few days prior to the first session.
