The L.A. Film School Ranked in TheWrap’s Top Film Schools List

The Los Angeles Film School is honored to be named in TheWrap’s top film schools list for 2021. This is the fifth year in a row that the film program has been ranked among elite film schools across the country. TheWrap compiles the rankings each year through anonymous polling of more than 1,200 entertainment industry insiders, educators and filmmakers.

Since the COVID-19 pandemic began in March of 2020, the film school established a robust transition for campus students to continue learning online. The film department is using a hybrid model to deliver its academic teachings both online and in person. Starting in January of 2022, all programs at The Los Angeles Film School and The Los Angeles Recording School, a division of The L.A. Film School, will be back on campus full time.

Ranked #27 Top Film Schools

“It doesn’t get much more Hollywood than a film school located on Sunset Boulevard. Opened in 1999 in the historic RCA Building across the street from the Cinerama Dome, LAFS offers degrees in animation, audio, entertainment business, film, graphic design, media communications, music production and writing for film & TV, and includes the L.A. Recording School as a division. The school has updated its main production stage and recording studio. Recent visiting heavy-hitters have included Oscar-nominated screenwriters Rian Johnson, Krysty Wilson-Carins and Taika Waititi and songwriters Cynthia Erivo, Bernie Taupin, Diane Warren, Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez.”
