    EICAR International Film School of Paris

    Fellow filmmakers, this film school is a scam. On the outside, it sure does look like a legit film school but on the inside it's filled with management that is highly racist, biased and extremely rude. Of course not everyone treats the students that way but a vast majority in the management do...

    London Film School or Goldsmiths?

    Hello all! I really need some advice. My story is a bit... Annoying, so say the least. I got into LFS last year and didn't go because of the high tuition. I'm not from the EU so it would've been about 32k per year... After spending 50k per year for 4 years in my US undergrads education, this...
