Valencia College School of Arts & Entertainment’s Film Program offers an intensive curriculum of experiential learning that immerses students in the entire filmmaking process. Their classroom moves from lectures and hands-on workshop to partnerships with film and television productions, where students work as the crew and learn from distinguished industry professionals.
With over 50 feature films that have been showcased in film festivals, streaming, television and theaters, Valencia’s Film program has made an impression on industry greats such as Steven Spielberg who lauded them as "One of the best film schools in the country."
