Our two-year hands-on program is the only one of its kind among the community colleges in Arizona. You begin learning equipment and techniques from the first day of class. And you learn from professionals. All our instructors currently work in the fields they teach.
Enrichment opportunities, such as special workshops, speakers, new products demonstrations, and a library of screenplays are also offered, as is helpful one-on-one advice when it’s needed. As a culmination of their studies, student work is evaluated by outside working professionals and can also be entered into our annual Student Film Showcase Festival.
The mission of the Scottsdale School of Film and Theatre is to provide an environment that fosters excellence and enhances creativity so our students leave their studies here skilled and ready to excel in their chosen professions, and will create their arts guided by the belief that the best artistic effort is governed by a love of the humane, the inclusive, and the diverse.
Thanks for your interest in our program. We love what we do around here and we think you will too!
