Student life at The L.A. Film School

LA Film Student Clubs

Clubs for Online and Campus Students to Join Today!

Having a life outside the classroom is just as important as earning your degree in school. Extracurricular activities help students connect with their peers and socialize in a non-academic setting and are a great way to build your film school network. We want to give students a well-rounded experience in and outside the classroom, which is why we have over 10 student clubs to join! If you are new to The L.A. Film School or interested in learning more about student life here, we’ve rounded up the clubs available for online and campus students.

The L.A. Film School Student Clubs

Our mission is to encourage community collaboration, camaraderie, and connection beyond specific classes and programs, for both on campus and online students. The L.A. Film School clubs are driven by students and guided by staff, and are open for membership to students from all degree programs.​​​​​​​ Head to Student Connect to find out how to join a club or even start your own.

How can my art make an impact?
