The Hollywood Reporter named the School of the Arts Film Program to its annual list of the 25 best film schools in the country, placing Columbia at number five. That is one spot higher than last year, when the Film Program was ranked sixth in the United States.
Twelve films by Columbia students, alumni or faculty members have been chosen to screen at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival. A total of 23 Columbia filmmakers were involved in the making of the selected films, four of which are features and four shorts.
The National Board of Review has recognized four School of the Arts student films in its 2016 grant cycle. NBR student grants promote cinematic production by providing assistance to young filmmakers to finish their projects and exhibit them at festivals worldwide.more
