Pros
  • Practical experience
  • Industry members
The summer intensive film program at Sarah Lawrence was fantastic. We were taught by industry professionals, whom had many years of experience. They gave insight that I learned a lot from. The access to equipment allowed me to learn gear I had not been exposed to before. I thought the ability to make our own film, with the guidance of a supervisor, was very important as it opened my eyes to what running a set is like. Overall a great program great for aspiring filmmakers.

  • Top ten months of my life
I experienced the most incredible summer at IFI, and I wish I could relive it every day! however, since I cannot , I make do by taking what I learned, and using it to fuel my passion for film. Having the IFI teachers as reliable contacts, and my new friends to share this experience with, I am anxious to see where each of us ends up as story tellers and filmmakers.

Pros
  • Great teachers
  • Great campus
  • Superb experience
  • Post production equipment is industry standard
Cons
  • On set equipment can be improved (but not necessary for young inexperienced students)
I have been engaged with filmmaking since the age of 9 and was searching for a course that could further my knoll which is not always easy to find. I feel IFI was a perfect match. The classes were great where you could always pick something new up no matter how much you feel you know. The timetables were devided up very well giving time for you to study a lot while also socializing with your mates. The theory and practical parts of the course were balanced. Equipment used to shoot with were not industry standard or very high end, but for students first introduced to filmmaking it works fine as it is easy to master.
The instructors were very helpful and a joy to work with!
Overall the IFI program is an amazing program for everyone and actually encourages you to study film at college, opening your eyes to the advantages of lessons everyday.
Highly recommend it!
