Rome International Film School Review
Reviewed by: Alumni
Degree: Certificate
Concentration: Film Production
Rome International Film School was life-changing for me. I not only learned every aspect of the film making process, but I created strong bonds with classmates and faculty from all over the world. Exposure to these other perspectives on film, art, and culture has enriched my storytelling abilities and deepened my understanding of humanity. Furthermore, we students had round the clock access to top-tier camera and sound equipment, which created the atmosphere of a professional production house. Teachers were attentive and gave expert feedback based on their years of filmmaking experience. I can’t recommend RIFS more highly.
The best English taught Film-making program in Rome.

I recently attended the Rome International Film School (RIFS) for both a year-long course and their summer program. It was a truly remarkable experience. I was in an environment that fostered creativity, collaboration, and personal growth.

One of the standout aspects of RIFS was the opportunity to connect with incredibly talented individuals. From fellow students to faculty members, I was constantly surrounded by a diverse and passionate community. It broadened my perspective on storytelling and technical expertise.

The Faculty at RIFS not only possessed extensive knowledge and experience in the industry but also had a genuine desire to see their students succeed. They were approachable, supportive, and always willing to go the extra mile to ensure we had the resources and guidance we needed to bring our creative visions to life. I made three short films at RIFS that I am genuinely proud of.

I highly recommend it to anyone who is passionate about pursuing a career in Filmmaking.

A personalised learning experience for any film enthusiast
Reviewed by: Alumni
What an incredible opportunity to meet such talented people and learn from them! I had enquired about Production Design summer courses and, although they don't usually offer those, Carl organised one with a visiting professor, John Muto (Home Alone, Species). I got to experience both an academic and professional take on designing a movie; for someone looking to have a properly informed start in the film field, this was unbelievably helpful.

Only a fool would miss this opportunity

No filmmaker is so great that Carl Haber cannot help them improve and explore the full extent of their potential. I have had the pleasure to take a handful of courses from Carl at RIFS and in addition to being one of the most interesting and kind people you will meet in your life, Carl is boundlessly generous with his over 40 years of industry wisdom, and picking his brain is a true gift for anybody interested in cinema. Before taking classes with RIFS, I had already completed film school and worked on every type of project from music videos to shorts to feature films and commercial productions, and I have never felt more confident in my ability as a creator than with the knowledge I acquired from RIFS. The courses I took from Carl have given me clarity in the process and made me comfortable pushing the boundaries of what I thought I was capable of. Carl believes in his students and advocates for them to the utmost of his ability. If you want to become a better filmmaker, you would be foolish to leave this opportunity unexplored. 10/10 stars, full endorsement from me.

Thanks to professor Carl Haber I was able to learn the fundamentals of screenwriting and how to implement them. For the first time in my life, I'm able to write an interesting story from beginning to end. Haber is very knowledgeable and guides his students into the interesting world of filmmaking. Great class, school, and professor! I highly recommend it!

Are the classes in English? I'm guessing there are no programs for people from the US right now

the classes are in English, yes. Currently courses are online, so Americans can of course participate, as they are scheduled in the later afternoon Rome time. The hope and plan is to re-open the school on site for a special one semester term beginning in January, and if the covid19 pandemic eases up, and US residents are allowed back in to the EU and Italy specifically, then surely qualified Americans could join the program in Rome. If you are interested in the online classses taking place now and/or into the fall, please do write ASAP to info@romefilmschool.org - thanks from all of us at RIFS for your interest.
