AFI CONSERVATORY


Educating Tomorrow's Storytellers…Today

The filmmakers at the world-renowned AFI Conservatory learn by doing. Here, tomorrow's storytellers are placed in a hands-on, production-based environment and are trained by a group of dedicated working professionals from the film and television communities.

Located in the heart of the entertainment community in Hollywood, the AFI Conservatory places a strong emphasis on narrative visual storytelling and personal expression. This film program instills the tools that help filmmakers practice their craft and become better storytellers. Classes are broken up into teams that mirror a real production environment. Those teams collaborate on and produce more films than any other graduate-level film school. Upon graduation, about 81% of our graduates report that they are working.

APPLICATIONS FOR FALL 2019 WILL OPEN IN SEPTEMBER

If you have any questions about the application or the requirements, please contact the admissions office at 323.856.7740 or [email protected]. Join the AFI Conservatory's Mailing List.
