With about 2,500 students enrolled on campus, this institution features an excellent student-to-instructor ratio, as well as access to industry-standard gear and facilities. The Los Angeles Film School campus encompasses over 230,000 square feet and includes the historic Ivar Theatre and the former RCA building on Sunset Blvd. The Los Angeles Film School offers accredited degree programs in Animation & VFX, Film Production, Audio Production, Music Production and Entertainment Business. In addition, LA Film School also offers online degrees in Digital Filmmaking, Music Production, Graphic Design, Animation and Entertainment Business. The Los Angeles Film School has been named in the top 100 best schools for Animation by Animation Career Review and the California Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education (BPPE) to offer associate and bachelor degrees. With the school located in the heart of Hollywood, students are steps away from everything the Entertainment Capital of the World has to offer. The historic Dolby Theatre, The Palladium and The Pantages Theatre are excellent live venues, and we are located across the street from the historic Cinerama Dome, where movie and television premieres frequently take place. With wonderful weather year around (hovering around 50-60 degrees fahrenheit in the winter and 80-90 in the summer), the daily adventures are endless. Average Temperatures: Low (winter): 58°F/14°C High (summer): 82°F/28°C


Housing Coordinator provides assistance on finding off campus housing for all undergraduate students. We have agreements set-up with several apartment complexes that work with our student population. Options include dormitory-type housing in a neighboring off-site location that is two blocks from the campus; standard apartment-style units in several complexes within walking distance to the school and single rooms that are hosted by an American family in the Hollywood area. Our Housing department can assist in roommate matching and finding a living situation that suits any budget or lifestyle. All our partnered housing options are in secure environments and in close proximity to the main campus. Please visit the following website: (click on 'housing') for further details.

Student life

The Los Angeles Film School is located in Los Angeles (the largest city in California and the second largest city in the United States). Students are surrounded by an urban environment that provides many opportunities to network and train in the heart of the entertainment world. Guest lecturers (including major Film Directors, Recording Artists, etc.) are invited to our campus to speak directly with our students and provide their personal experience in this creative industry.

Additionally, students have many main attractions in Southern California that are attractive to students taking a break from their academic studies. A few examples include Hollywood Boulevard and the world-famous Hollywood Walk of Fame (located just outside our front entrance); Downtown Los Angeles with concert venues such as the Staples Center (home to the Los Angeles Lakers) and LA Live; Disneyland; the Getty Museum; and the sunny coastline with endless beaches, including the world-famous Venice Beach and the Santa Monica pier.
