MOVIEMAKER -- San Francisco State University (San Francisco, CA)

Outstanding Experimental Filmmaking Training

Undergrads pursuing a filmmaking degree at SF State are able to choose one of three pathways to customize their education. Fiction and documentary are two of the ones they can follow, but it’s the experimental filmmaking road that presents the most room for unconventional points of view to flourish. Like their fellow students in the other tracks, those in the experimental crowd develop original short films. But they also mold their take on cinema by learning about contemporary art and historical avant-gardes.

The refreshing curriculum covers experiments in cinematic form, experimental animation and exploration in interactive cinema.
