Affordable Film Schools in US


New Member
Hello, I searched a lot but couldn't find enough responses about affordable film grad schools in the US on this forum (except the search). I'm an international student and recently finished my undergrad, looking into applying for film schools in the US for the 2021 fall semester. After some research, I feel it is surely not a good idea depending on scholarships to attend film schools considering I'm an intl. student.
Considering schools that won't put me in debt, I have been considering UNCSA, UT, Columbia (probably not anymore after I read about art school not being completely need-based)

Are there any other schools that I can consider which is affordable with a great film program and also give out scholarships to international students?

Thanks in advance!
