Online and On-Location Classes!




Help make Jerusalem the international destination point for writers and filmmakers.


image-1-supportBased in Jerusalem, JCAD is an international school devoted to educating students from diverse backgrounds. Whether a student joins our online or on-location classes, we teach the disciplines necessary to write for film or novel according to rigorous Hollywood requirements. Students can learn writing techniques without committing to a high-cost film school!



Why Support JCAD?

What if you could make your dream a JCAD student’s reality?

By becoming a supporter, you become part of the JCAD dream: To enable writers to tell their stories one page at a time.
