Overview: Vancouver Film School was founded on the philosophy that one year of concentrated production work combined with industry-led theory is more valuable than four years of purely theoretical instruction. This unique educational model has proven to be successful across our 13 programs, allowing students to achieve more in one year - or less - than at any other school.

In 12 months or less, students receive a rigorous and comprehensive education including lectures, tutorials, productions, collaborations with other departments, mentorship with working professionals, and insight from guest speakers.

The keys to the VFS model are intensity and structure: there's no such thing as "down time" during a year at VFS - unlike university and college educations, each term, each week, each day is filled with learning and creating. And rather than picking and choosing from a variety of courses, your VFS education is carefully designed so that the courses and projects in each term build directly upon what you learned the term before.

This is why one intensive year at VFS is the equivalent of a 3 or 4 year program at another academic institution. It's also what makes a VFS education perfect for students who don't want to spend a lot of time in school before starting their careers in the entertainment industry.
