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.
