Students develop the specific creative and technical expertise, as well as the critical “employability” skills necessary to launch their careers in today’s fast-paced film environment. At SFI, our unique hands-on and production-based approach means students get a rigorous, well-rounded education in film, where they immerse themselves in the filmmaking process starting from day one. Our faculty is comprised of experienced, working professional filmmakers, actors, writers, editors, composers, cinematographers, agents and other specialists.
