It features training in sophisticated production techniques and technologies, shooting on professional sound stages and on location, producing documentaries, and expanding knowledge in areas such as directing, screenwriting, cinematography, editing, sound, production design and post-production.
ATVF is a member of CILECT (Centre International de Liaison des Ecoles de Cinéma et de Télévision), an international consortium of the world’s major television and film schools. Students have won awards for their word at film festivals across North America and around the world.
