Root Branch Film Academy

Root Branch Film Academy is a media institute for youth.

Located in the heart of Baltimore's historic Mt. Vernon community, we offer training in filmmaking, video production, creative writing, photography, acting and more...

Founded under parent company Root Branch Productions, LLC in 2010 by CEO and Executive Director Vonnya Pettigrew, RBFA serves as a medium for young media makers to express themselves in an artistic and meaningful way.

Since our inception, we've reached thousands of youth across the globe. Films produced by our students have gained local, regional and international recognition in a number of film festivals and have won awards including the acclaimed Telly Award.

From watching TV...
to making TV!

Our mission is to move youth from idle time
in front of the tube to behind the camera.
