Here at APJ, we strive for the best. We’re constantly growing, getting bigger and better because that’s what our students deserve. This March, we are extremely proud and excited to announce Artists Institute’s first call for student applications!

The Artists Institute is a free college for art and technology located in Jacmel, Haiti. The Institute creates modern opportunities for Haiti’s underprivileged youth to foster entrepreneurship and business development in local Haitian creative industries. The Institute currently offers programs in film through Ciné Institute, as well as in music production and audio engineering through Audio Institute: We Are the World School of Music and Audio Engineering. Each division offers programs in training, employment and professional support.

Ciné Institute is Haiti’s first and only professional film school. Staff, students, supporters, and sponsors are developing Haiti’s film industry by bringing together local and international leaders in cinema and education to train and support young Haitian storytellers and technicians. The Institute creates hundreds of local jobs each year for graduates and community members, servicing renowned local and international clients. Ciné Institute is proud and thankful to be supported by film industry leaders such as Ben Stiller, Francis Ford Coppola, George Lucas, Sean Penn, and Jonathan Demme.
