Film schools or colleges?

I believe that Emerson College and New York University are the best colleges for film, but New York Film Academy is the best Film School.

Didn’t you just do this? Boston is it in New England.

Check out the programs at Northeastern U and Simmons, in or around Boston.

Here’s an interesting directory that I got from googling “film schools New England.”

I have seen some really good short films by the folks over at Amherst College. Personally, I would recommend the Vancouver Film School if you ever decide to study away from home.

@gailcalled: northeastern is a prestigious school but most of their creative departments are really mediocre.

My daughter went to the NY Film Academy and truly loved it—and got a lot out of it. It is a technical school, unlike film schools connected to a college or university. No four-year degree but lots of hands on. She received a lot of work as a result—also lived in Los Angeles. Her best friend also went there and now works there. I would be happy to connect you if you would like the “inside track”—her thoughts on NYFA.

@ sndfreQ: Just caught the “new England” thing in his description.

Never mind!

Vancouver Film School is really good, and really expensive.
But I would say Full Sail University is by far is the best in the US.
