Graduate Film

Work with film industry experts to redefine the existing media landscape with visually innovative, narratively engaging personal filmmaking.

ArtCenter's graduate Film program provides developing filmmakers with an immersive opportunity to refine and expand their visual storytelling abilities under the mentorship and guidance of top Hollywood talent and decision makers.

Students create and own their personal work, with a focus on directing, screenwriting, cinematography, editing or producing. Our location in Los Angeles, the heart of the entertainment industry, enables us to build a faculty of entertainment industry professionals and guest lecturers who guide students in the design, development and production of their projects.

Traditional disciplinary boundaries melt away in a program known for attracting a diverse community of storytellers. Among the College's many unique resources is its community of talented designers. And collaboration among students and faculty from other disciplines allows ideas to flourish and encourages visual experimentation.

Our graduates join a large extended family of creative professionals who are widely recognized for bringing a unique approach to every project they tackle.
