Our faculty of distinguished working filmmakers and small classes foster close, mentoring relationships.

ArtCenter’s proximity to Los Angeles gives the College unique access to studio heads and A-list talent who, as classroom instructors or guest lecturers, share their intimate knowledge of the business. Our curriculum focuses on mastering the entire filmmaking process—screenwriting, directing, cinematography, editing and producing—giving students a solid foundation of technical and creative skills. Under the guidance of our faculty of working professionals, students use industry-standard equipment and the latest production and post-production tools to refine their artistic style and find their distinct voice.
