Our graduates emerge poised to thrive in Hollywood thanks to their virtuoso visual and narrative storytelling skills and business savvy.

Determination and talent are imperative to a successful career in Hollywood. But in an ever-changing industry, it's equally important to be nimble and versatile. Due to its size and individual tailored curriculum, ArtCenter’s Graduate Film program is particularly adept in its ability to respond to an industry known for its plot turns. Entrepreneurialism, a cornerstone of our curriculum, is also essential for success in the contemporary entertainment industry.

Our apprentice filmmakers are treated like professionals, not students. Each student’s curriculum is tailored to best meet their needs based on their interests and experience. They create their own projects. They choose their crew. They own their negatives.
