    Great film school
    5/5, 5 out of 5, reviewed Jan 23, 2016
    • + The class is really small so all the professors know the students really work. I think it's a great and nurturing environment.
    • - The program is very very competitive. The curriculum can be very stressful.
    I really enjoyed my first semester. I encourage anyone who wants to study at a film school to apply here. You also end up working with students from other years as well so you learn a lot. There are many opportunities and short films that you can work on. It's really a fulfilling experience. You are encouraged to express your voice and push your limits. I have grown as a person and human being so much in just 4 months. I am excited about my next semesters. You are trained on all technical aspects. So you can end up working as DP, editor, producer etc.. You become very confident in all areas of filmmaking.

    The Graduate Film program is an intensive three-year conservatory in the Maurice Kanbar Institute of Film and Television that trains students in the art of cinematic storytelling. We focus on helping writer/directors develop a narrative voice and the technical virtuosity to express that voice in cinema.

    Students learn by doing, in the classroom and on set. They write, direct, and produce multiple films and exercises, shooting and crewing on each other's projects. Our students transition into the professional world with a reel of short films that showcase their talent, a feature film script, and a range of highly sought technical skills.

    The Graduate Film Program offers a stimulating, challenging, and diverse creative community in the heart of Greenwich Village. Our faculty are working professionals who are committed to developing the next generation of filmmakers.
