Film Schools Productions



Film Emporium offers film school productions insurance.


The Film School program is designed specifically for film schools at universities. This annual policy provides a comprehensive basket of coverages for school sanctioned productions.


This program is flexible. It can accommodate film schools of all sizes. Small ones with a few students and large ones with hundreds. Over 50 types of productions are eligible.


The program is available to U.S. film schools. Student projects are covered while the student is enrolled at the school and projects are sanctioned by the school.


Does your current policy allow you to cover student shoots outside of school property? We have coverages that may be able to help!

Quotes are complimentary.  No Obligation.

Insurance Classes

Film Emporium has had the honor and privilege of speaking at film schools around the United States. Recently, we have visited the New York Film Academy, Columbia University and the City University of New York. Our classes teach the importance of proper insurance, how to budget for insurance, and how these things can affect a production.


Classes are moderated by instructors and followed by Q&A sessions with an industry expert with over 20 years of experience. Schedule a session this semester to have us share our expertise with your school! Contact Laird Criner by Email or phone 800-371-2555.
