The Film School @ SFUAD is a hotbed of imagination and innovation. A space to create. A space where you conceptualize, make, and polish projects – and then move on to the next big thing. Students coming to us are looking for professional equipment, professional mentorship, professional internships, all with the purpose of working toward their professional goals – and they get it all from day one.

  • Choose between 3 or 4 year BFA degree plans that will get you ready for the industry on your timeline.
  • Every incoming student is given a DSLR (Canon T5i) camera to keep – for free – forever! We want you working from day one!
  • Choose an emphasis in Story Development, Production, Visual Effects/Technical Animation, or Post Production.
  • Opt for a minor in Entrepreneurship hone your business savvy or add a second emphasis
  • Get internships on feature films and TV shows – from WGN's "Manhattan" to Netflix's "Longmire" to the Hollywood films that come to our on-campus facilities, Garson Studios ("No Country for Old Men," "True Grit," "Iron Man 2," and more).
