"Each year, the film industry takes note of The Hollywood Reporter's film school rankings, and the country's top schools vie to be included," said Janice Min, Co-President/Chief Creative Officer of the Entertainment Group of Guggenheim Media. "We're proud to again present a authoritative list, based upon the widest-ever survey of industry and education insiders."
Based on an extensive survey of 2,300 industry professionals, Film Independent, American Cinematheque, and the schools themselves, the list takes into account tuition, student competitiveness, and which schools have "the latest tech, the most access to big names and the starriest alumni."
The Hollywood Reporter also noted five up-and-coming schools to watch: Art Center College of Design, Art Institute of Chicago, Northern Film School, U.K., International School of Film and Television, Cuba (EICTV), and Mount St. Mary's College, Los Angeles. The Hollywood Reporter also published a list of the top 15 international film schools, with the U.K.'s National Film and Television School, Lodz Film School of Poland, and La Femis in Paris taking the top three spots.
