About Fresh Films

Fresh Films is a film production company and training ground for youth working in the entertainment industry, whether it be writing, filmmaking, or even marketing! We engage future filmmakers on set for Emmy- nominated feature films, TV shows, and documentaries that are seen on DirecTV, IFC, iTunes, Amazon, Redbox, and in theatres. Our recent project with Reese Witherspoon and Hello Sunshine brought 21 female filmmakers to Los Angeles to create a documentary about women in film, and we’ve also produced “The Stream” starring Rainn Wilson ("The Office") and Mario Lopez!

Fresh Films is now located on-campus of Augustana College, a top- tier liberal arts college located on the beautiful Mississippi River in Rock Island, IL. Fresh Films and the college have launched a new Entertainment & Media program that allows college students to learn both technical and industry relevant skills for careers in entertainment – and Augustana students get to work with Fresh Films all-year long in production, editing, marketing and business. (Hint, hint – check us out when you’re looking at colleges!)

Fresh Films and Augustana College also collaborate with educators to bring the program into schools as part of interactive assemblies, workshops and grants that expose teens to the many art and STEAM careers in the $695 billion dollar entertainment industry.

We’re excited to work with teens – to build their resume, tech and career skills – through the fun of film.
