A Snapshot of Our Year at The Los Angeles Film School in 2022

As we look forward to the New Year, we reflect on the many milestones we’ve met with the return to in-person instruction. Our students’ resiliency and dedication to their education didn’t waiver as we transitioned back to campus at the beginning of the year. The school hallways felt more vibrant and full in 2022 as students continued their studies in an in-person setting among their peers and instructors. Our online student community also expanded and they found new ways of connecting through online platforms such as Discord and Twitch. We are so proud of the tremendous work and commitment of our wonderful school community. From elite academic rankings to our students and graduates contributing their talents to the industry, these are the highlights over the past year.
