The Hollywood Reporter’s Best 25 Film School Rankings


For those interested in film school possibilities, here is the Hollywood Reporter‘s ranking of what it consideres to be the top 25 film schools in the world. As with any ranking, it must be taken with a grain of salt (most of the schools listed are in the United States [and the majority in the state of California], with only one in Asia, and four in Europe), but of particular interest to Nigerian filmmakers may be the less expensive non-American schools on this list.

To read the entire ranking which The Hollywood Reporter states is its “inaugural list (comprised with help from industry insiders) of the world’s best” with details on each school, click through to the Hollywood Reporter article.
