Our comprehensive curriculum provides a foundation in all aspects of filmmaking allowing graduates to enter the industry through multiple doors.

While not all films are art, we think the best place to learn filmmaking is at an art school. Unlike other film programs, students at ArtCenter receive a diversified education and graduate as true multi-hyphenates able to edit, direct and produce. Film students also have the unique opportunity to collaborate with other departments from advertising to interaction design to become strong storytellers across multiple mediums. Our alumni are influencers across the industry—screenwriters, directors, cinematographers and producers for features, commercials and television.
