VARIETY -- Not only are these film schools and their faculty prepping their students for successful careers in the entertainment biz, but they are guiding them with structure and encouragement and artistic expertise through one of the most turbulent eras in modern-day society.

San Francisco State University

Featuring one of the most diverse student bodies in the country, it’s no surprise that one of the core principles for its College of Liberal & Creative Arts is social engagement. But paired with creative expression and critical thinking, faculty offer an in-depth education covering the language and mechanics of cinema as a medium and art form across all platforms in order to nurture authentic, individual voices for and from each student. Meanwhile, graduate programs encourage mastery, critical examination and experimentation in cinema production and history.
