Helpful Resources for Students
in a Time of Need

We wanted to share some support resources with our Film School family. This is a difficult time for so many people and industries. A little help goes a long way, and we are here to share support during this pandemic. We hope you can find clarity in the small wins that guide us through our new daily lives.

If you know of other COVID-19 community support resources, please share them with our team! We will add them to this growing support list. Email You can also find these resources shared across our own social channels each week.

Here’s what companies and local LA businesses are sharing on their platforms:


To support our institutions during this challenging time, JSTOR and our participating publishers are making an expanded set of content freely available to our participating institutions where students have been displaced due to COVID-19.
