About Us

The Film Production Coalition (FPC) is an organization dedicated to collaboratively making short films every quarter in small production groups, in a variety of genres. We don’t require any experience and are committed to teaching members all aspects of film production from start to finish. 

We also host a quarterly festival that is used to exhibit the work of FPC in addition to content produced by other Student Media organizations and independent filmmakers.

Email us at fpc.ucsc@gmail.com for information or check out or social media below!


FPC will continue remotely throughout the COVID-19 Pandemic!
