In 2015, we launched our very own Next International Film Festival of Houston, also known as NIFF HOUSTON.
Each year Niff presents an amazing lineup of features, shorts, and documentaries from all around the globe. Check out NIFF award winning Writer-director Romuald Boulanger's thriller On The Line.
Starring Mel Gibson, On The Line is based on Boulanger's short film Talk, which won several awards at Niff 2019.
Our production company Lake Camp Productions makes 2-3 feature films or series a year that get released worldwide, premiering in different film festivals, thus giving an exposure to our talented students. Our films have been opening in film festivals around the globe, notably the Museum of Modern Arts (MOMA), Cannes, New York, Hoboken and others.
Next Actor Studio works with several A List Agents and Producers in Hollywood and Europe, and have worked with several well-known actors, such as Oscar and Golden Globe nominee Eric Roberts, United Nations Speaker and producer Kamala Lopez, KISS founder Gene Simmons' wife - actress and former supermodel Shannon Tweed, NBA champ Rick Fox, Disney star Andrea Guasch, Television star Charlie O'Connell, Martin Sheen's brother Joe Estevez to name but a few. A list of our films can be found on IMDb.
We welcome students from all around the world. Foreign students are able to join our in-person classes, as long as they are already in Houston. Otherwise, they can take our virtual classes via zoom.
