Our Filmmaking Concentration is a powerful springboard for students looking to start a career in the entertainment industry. Our programs focus on how films are made today using the very latest equipment and tools in an immersive “learn by doing” environment.

Over five quarters, students work as editors, directors, writers and cinematographers, closely collaborating with classmates in all of our other concentrations on film projects from the very first day in class. You’ll graduate with employable skills and tools along with a portfolio of your work — individually and on crews — that showcases everything you’ve learned during the course of your studies here at SFI.

Looking to build a working portfolio and gain a great foundation for career work in the real world of the film industry? 
Our Filmmaking Concentration is for you.
