The ever-expanding film industry has given rise to a number of film schools. Due to this, the prospective students are faced with a difficult task when it comes to choosing the right school for their film studies. It is always recommended to gather detailed information about the different schools regarding the facilities and educational exposure provided by them, the course curriculum, fee structure, and the placement opportunities available before choosing one. Since these courses cost a lot of money, a carefully planned decision must be taken to avoid any problems later on. Students should ensure that their careers have the best kick-start and gain the best value of the money spent. A quick survey of the top ten film schools might help the students in evaluating and selecting the right school to begin their career in the film industry.
One of the most prominent features of the top ten film schools is their highly qualified and experienced staff, who play the most crucial role in shaping up the students’ future. Also important is the course curriculum and the number of streams offered by the schools providing flexibility and yet taking care of the specific interest areas of the students for specialization. The school infrastructure, with the latest equipments and facilities, is one of the other major distinctive features of the top film schools. This includes the teaching methods, workshops, projects, and seminars. Exposure to a diverse culture encouraging students from all strata of society ensures a healthy and supportive environment contributing to the students’ overall outlook.
The course fees of the top schools are usually quite high and hence, most of them provide financial aids and scholarships to the deserving students. Additional events such as alumni meetings and inviting special guest lecturers are also an essential part of the top film schools. Some schools even invite renowned film personalities to share their expertise with the students. The learning period is not just confined to textual knowledge but also complemented with extra-curricular and cultural activities. Based on all these criteria, a list of these top ten film schools can be found online, categorized according to the different states.

Question by The REBELution!: What are the top 10 film schools?
Answer by David West
Top Ten Film Schools in the USA
1. USC (i am slightly biased though)
5. CHAPMAN UNIVERSITY
6. CAL ARTS
7. Loyola Marymount
11. The real test is can you do the job. Whatever part of film production that you wish to do, you must do it well. Some have said to forego film school and just use the money to make your own film. Let your work get you more work. This won’t work for everyone. It does mean that just because you cant afford to go to film school doesn’t mean that you can’t make a film. Read, read, and read some more until you have read everything that the student in film school has studied. While you are at it shoot lots of video. Then shoot film. The more the better. You can’t get any worse, only better.
