The Hollywood Reporter came out with its sixth annual ranking of the “Top 25 American Film Schools”, naming Ringling College of Art and Design as number 16. Moving up a space since last year, Ringling College is the youngest film school to make the list. Film students of the College enjoy access to some of the biggest names in the filmmaking industry through the Ringling College Studio Lab, including Roman Coppola, Kevin Smith, Werner Herzog, and Sissy Spacek (among others) and will soon have access to a 30,000 square foot soundstage and post production facility, scheduled to open next year.
According to THR, “the magazine assembled the list by consulting with academic experts, industry professionals and scores of film school alumni.”
Congratulations to our Film Department!
