Best Film Schools
Spielberg, Tarantino, and Wes Anderson all had to start somewhere. That somewhere is an undergraduate film program where you will hone your skills as a future writer, director, producer, editor, cameraman, and lighting technician. Yet it is important to note that film schools vary greatly in the quality of instructors, possession of high-end equipment, and connections to the industry that can be essential when graduates begin networking in order to land their first jobs. The usual suspects (or Usual Suspects since we’re talking about film), like USC and NYU grace our list of the Best Colleges for Film, but so do many schools far from the entertainment hubs of New York and L.A. All of these institutions produce graduates that are prepared to chase their filmmaking dreams.
