Real filmmaking with real filmmakers.

Enrich your knowledge of filmmaking, screenwriting, computer animation, or film/television business from the oldest and most prolific film school in the United States. If you wish to hone your craft or enhance your knowledge of filmmaking, you are invited to apply in any of our class offerings, which cover multiple aspects of the entertainment industry.

Summer Program classes are taught by leading industry professionals during two separate six-week sessions. In addition to gaining access to the School's state-of-the-art facilities and equipment, Summer Program students will receive college credit upon completion of their course. The Summer Program is open to domestic and international applicants who are 16 years of age and older.

Provided COVID-19 subsides and we are granted permission from state and health officials we intend to host classes in person in the Cinematic Arts Complex. In the event that is not possible, we will host our courses remotely, offering a robust series of programming as we did during the Summer of 2020.
