AFI excels in film school ranking!
Every summer, film school applicants anticipate the Hollywood Reporter’s list of the Top 25 film schools. This year, it only refers to American schools, but there were 600 online ballots considered, among them many from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. It was a neck-and-neck race between the two top film schools USC School of Cinematic Arts and the American Film Institute Conservatory – but in the end the new Interactive Media Building and the IMAX cinema from USC were unbeatable. AFI on the other hand, had the most Oscar- and Sundance nominations!
This rating makes me proud to have been offered a place at both schools and I am very content with my choice to study at AFI, because I’m not too much into 3D and interactive media and prefer the classical approach to feature film and the chances to show your films to a greater audience.
My plane will take off on Friday, I’m so excited!
