The future is short. Short films are the future of storytelling. But only high-level production value and knowledge of the industry will ensure success. Our New York City-based 10-month program is structured simply: We believe in learning by doing. Each student graduates with a thesis film—having developed a legitimate screenplay, directed and produced a professional-quality short film. With hands-on instruction from our award-winning faculty and New York City as your classroom, you will do things you can't do anywhere else, and will graduate ready to jump into a career that could change your life and quite possibly, the world.
