Hi Everyone,

I'll be 37 this year. I'm currently a teacher and hate my job. I am trying to switch careers and I am really interested in the film industry. I have zero experience in it. Am I too old to start right now? Also any good schools in Ontario, Canada that you can recommend?

Thanks :)

Age doesn't matter, especially in film I think. Filmmaking is all about absorbing the life you have been experiencing and reimagine them on the screen. Many talented filmmakers didn't start with a film school background either. It's all about the amount of willingness and expressing vulnerability when telling the stories. Don't let age discourage you. That's probably the last thing you need to worry about.
