Mission & Strategy

The essential experience of SVA Film is collaborative and your teachers and classmates quickly become your partners in creativity. All of our faculty do what they teach –actively contending in today’s high tech media marketplace. The relationships you form with your mentors now mean you are already connected to the film industry. Our students intern at the top production and post-production companies, among others, and are often working before they graduate. Because education isn’t just academic but hands-on right from the beginning, students learn early what they love and what they're good at. They share your skills working on your classmates’ films. Bonds are formed during the intense days and nights of shooting that not only contribute to fine work during school but to career opportunities after graduation. Your four years culminates in a showcase of your work to industry professionals and luminaries at the Dusty Film & Animation Festival.
