"My Brock Film Studies education was extremely valuable in many ways, but there is absolutely no chance I would be where I am today without the technical know-how and hands-on learning that the Advanced Filmmaking program at Fanshawe gave me."
Kyle Scott - Fanshawe-Brock alumnus. Video Production Supervisor, CFL
"As a university graduate, the Advanced Filmmaking program at Fanshawe was an incredibly welcome change of pace. It’s allowed me to focus on the hands-on aspect of filmmaking that I did not have the chance to learn while in University. The shift from reading theories and essay writing to producing content and connecting with my fellow filmmakers was exactly what I needed.
The environment of AFM is a lot more intimate than the university experience. You are always working in groups to create projects and receiving constant feedback from the professors. If you want to learn the ins and outs making a film, and meet the people who are going to help you do it, there is no better place to go than Fanshawe’s Advanced Filmmaking program."

"I had an incredible experience while attending Fanshawe! I learned so much and made so many new friends. Fanshawe allowed me to see my potential in the film industry and helped me find the department that most interests me. During the internship period of the program I was able to take my new skills over to the west coast and a year later I am now a member of the set dec department in IATSE working on a big-name show!"
